The new Personal Performance Awards are designed for paddlers wanting to gain recognition of their learning and development, in the craft and environment they choose. These awards allow paddlers to improve their skills, working towards the award of their choice, developing their decision making and fundamental skills.
There are no dual discipline awards and all of the awards are direct entry, giving the paddler choice.
Our Coastal Sea Kayak Award endorses your judgment, decision making and expertise and requires a good understanding of paddling on the sea.
You will be confident planning and undertaking journeys on the sea in winds up to and including force 4 and/or tides up to 2 Knots, in a sea kayak or specific sit on tops in tidal or non-tidal environments. Your confidence will be based upon both proficiency in skills and a broad appreciation of surroundings and environmental context.
Your award will be seen as a sound basis for independently building the experience and expertise we associate with Advanced Sea Kayak Award holders.
