British Canoeing Personal Performance Coastal Sea Kayak Award

This award is designed to progress your ability in decision making and personal paddling skills out on the sea.

You should 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.

Proficiency in skills and a broad appreciation of surroundings and environmental context is highly beneficial. Your award should be seen as a sound basis for independently building the experience and expertise we associate with Advanced Sea Kayak Award holders.
