For the sixth year, ISK brings:
3 days of  BC (formerly known as BCU) 3 Star and 3 Star+ skills development
This year, again featuring BC Level 5 Coach (and all around good guy): John Carmody
Not required to posess any BC awards
  • Build your skills with a world class coach, a world class classroom and world class curriculum
  • This class is designed for personal and focused attention
  • Continue to build upon your existing skills
  • Come away with solid skills and an action plan for growth
You've heard how fantastic the training was for club members year after year, and you want to up your game to a new level. This is a fantastic value and it's hosted at a local venue.

This course encompasses skill level training for those who are seeking or possess a BCU 3 Star award.

The BC, or British Canoeing, has a long history of kayak instruction, which is valued and recognized worldwide as having a high standard of quality and depth of learning. Their Star ratings system reflects a curriculum that puts you on a definitive path of growth towards becoming a better kayaker. There are regional branches of the organization in many countries including Paddlesports North America.

John Carmody is a highly qualified and respected Kayak instructor, who brings a wealth of practical experience and skill to enhance his student's learning. I have taken training and assessment from John and find him to be a very caring and nurturing coach who is interested in seeing students succeed.

To recognise the level of skill, understanding, and knowledge demonstrated (whilst 
journeying in a moderate tidal environment as part of a led group with winds no more 
than Force 4) is of the standard of an able improving sea paddler and beyond that of 
the beginner." 

This is a highly sought out, 3 full day event (not partial days to be traded), so please consider your conditioning level. This is training only - no assessment. Students are encouraged to focus on the training, not the award.

This class will take place at the Bayfield Peninsula to provide the participant the opportunity to learn in a wide varieties of conditions. Some driving to different sides of the peninsula may be necessary to seek optimum conditions. Camping at Little Sand Bay group site fees will be included.

 BC 3* Syllabus and Training Notes will give the best explanation of the course.
