One Star Course

The 1 Star award is a clear stepping stone to becoming a paddler. Designed as a basic award, the One Star is the level people would typically reach after a five week introductory course and is equivalent to the PaddlePower Passport award. The award encourages safe practice, regard for equipment and others, and having fun. The award is obtained by taking the assessment in any style of kayak or canoe (where assessment is taken by a doubles crew, a variation of bow and stern positions must be demonstrated.) A journey is included in each course.
