Advanced Sea Kayak Award

Description

10 CPD Points

Your Advanced Sea Kayak Award will give you the personal and decision-making skills to have a safe and fun day out in a sea kayak in advanced sea conditions.

This award will expand your experience of sea kayaking to include a wide variety of sea conditions. This includes winds over force 4 and tides over 2 knots. You will work in both tidal and non-tidal environments. In addition, you can travel coastlines and make open crossings in excess of 2 nautical miles.

As the conditions are more advanced you will need to ensure that you are fully aware of the conditions around you. You will analyse the weather and other environmental conditions that could impact your paddle. You and your Coach will look at the etiquette and conditions that may govern the water you wish to paddle on. Looking out for and following buoyage is important when on water that is regularly used by larger craft.

Whats involved?

You and your Coach will discuss what equipment will be best for each trip to ensure that you are safe and protected from the elements. You will need to consider what first aid and safety kit you could take with you. Your rescue skills will continue to be developed to deal with rescues in a more advanced environment, you will be asked to bear in mind where your help can come from should you get into difficulty and how you can communicate with them.

Your skills within a sea kayak will be developed to allow you to keep control of your sea kayak in advanced water conditions. You will learn how to use the conditions to help you steer and manoeuvre the boat easier. As well as considering the best strokes to use for longer paddling journeys.

After the session you and your Coach will reflect and discuss where to go next as well as what has changed whilst you were out on the water. You will consider what technology you could use to help aid both your reflection and your development.

Each day we spend sea kayaking further expands our skills and knowledge, creating a more enjoyable experience on the water. With no two trip experiences ever the same we never stop learning. Continually evaluating the choices we make creates a natural evolution of decision-making and sea kayaking ability.
