Star awards are great benchmarks for your sea kayaking skills. Add Star awards to our courses or, book a specific 1, 2 or 3 Star training and assessment course.

Successful performance at this level indicates a paddler can use fundamental paddlesport skills on flat water to control the movement of both canoes and kayaks and have an understanding of how the paddle, boat, and water interact.

The 2 Star award demonstrates you can paddle both a kayak and a canoe. Assessment is possible in any kayak or canoe, e.g. open cockpit, sit-on-top, V-shaped hull or flat-bottomed, stand up paddle board, etc.
