Instructional Courses

The new Star Award scheme provides the support and encouragement paddlers need to get out and go paddling. The initial awards are generic, encouraging paddlers to experience the various disciplines of paddlesport available, with paddlers 'specialising' at the Three Star Award. The emphasis of these initial awards is to develop personal skills and gain independence.

Sea Kayak Sardinia offers BCU Star Test Training and Assessments in one, two and three star.
