British Canoeing Awarding Body launches the NEW Sea Kayak Safety and Rescue Course

Quality training from the world's largest paddling course provider

The NEW Sea Kayak Safety and Rescue course is now available and aims to provide paddlers with the key safety and rescue skills required to operate safely and be able to deal with common problems on the sea, in both sheltered and moderate conditions.

Throughout the 7 hour course, paddlers will explore simple strategies and safe skills that can provide the tools to solve common paddling issues. Topics covered include safety frameworks, contact and towing rescues, self-rescues, dealing with equipment damage/failure, and assisting others. 

The course is suitable for all ages and great for individuals, clubs and groups wanting to expand their safety practices on the sea. Suitable craft include sea kayaks, sea specific sit on tops and closed cockpit kayaks.  Participants need to either hold the BCAB Sea Kayak Award or equivalent ability to the paddling environment and have the boat control required to participate fully in the course.

‘This is a great addition to our safety award suite, with many paddlers venturing out onto the sea each year, exploring our wonderful coastline. The training course aims to develop both confidence and skills in looking after yourself and others, focusing on keeping safe, calling for assistance and dealing with common issues whilst on the sea’.

– Lee Pooley, Director of Coaching and Qualifications at British Canoeing
