BCU One Star Award: Sunday Sept 30th


We work with qualified British Canoe Union coaches to deliver the nationally recognised One Star qualification.

The British Canoeing 1 Star is a clear stepping-stone to becoming a paddler. Designed as a basic award, the 1 Star is the level people would typically reach after an introductory course of 6 hours quality water time.

Candidates must be water confident, and ideally should be able to swim (this is desirable but not essential). Buoyancy Aids will be provided.

This award can be taken in any type of paddlesport craft, including:

  • Canadian Canoes

  • Sit-on-tops

  • Stand up paddle boards

Courses are for a full day, 10am till 5pm.
Arrive ten minutes before the course start at the pontoon (take the path to the left of the Visitor Centre).
Please bring a towel and a change of clothes.

Suitable for age 14+
£60 per person
