Explore Paddle Award

August 21 @ 9:30 am - August 22 @ 5:00 pm

£155 – £220
River Touring
The British Canoeing Paddlesport Explore Award gives you ownership; because you choose what to focus on and where you move next in the world of paddlesport. Working with a coach you will be able to develop a programme that suits you, as a result no two Explore Awards are the same. In this award, you will take ownership of your own decisions and learn to make confident choices; based on the places you paddle, wind and weather. This award will be delivered using the lake at Ellerton Park and a day trip from Ripon to Boroughbridge, the choice of craft is up to you; canoe, kayak, Sit On Top (SOT) or Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP). We can provide kayaks and canoes, but not SUP’s or SOT’s, sorry!

You will learn to make confident decisions. Above all you will Recognise your ability to independently paddle your chosen craft in a sheltered water environment.

The Explore Award

The Paddlesport Explore Award is all about allowing you to choose where you move next in the world of canoeing. There’s a strong emphasis on independence with this award, and the Explore award will fill in the gaps of knowledge you might have so you can get out paddling safely on an adventure! The award covers areas like:

  1. On the water etiquette and how to share the space with other water users
  2. Different environments you can paddle (lakes, rivers, canals, estuaries)
  3. Controlling your kayak, canoe or SUP safely
  4. Clothing and equipment needs for different environments and weather
  5. Safe exploration
