Canoe Kayak Awards
British canoe union/UKCC – Canoe and/or Kayak 3 Star Award
The British Canoe Union (BCU/UKCC) awards scheme changes at the 3 star award, where each candidate must gain proficiency awards for any specific craft in the paddle sport range. Therefore you must gain a 3 star in kayak and a separate 3 star in open canoe, and similarly for sea kayak etc. Depending on your previous experience within paddle sport we may be able to progress your star award level to 3 star whilst on the programme.
