Wyedean Canoe Club, Watersports Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire - England where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Symonds Yat Ross-on-Wye Herefordshire England
Wyedean Canoe Club has been in existence for over three decades. It is a family club with the emphasis on fun. The atmosphere within the club is very informal and its success relies on all members talking to each other. Being water based sport, often in small groups, this is easier said than done. It is therefore important that if you are new to the club and you want to get the most out of it, introduce yourself to existing members and let them know what aspects of the sport you are interested in. BCU Paddlesport Performance Awards: BCU 1 and 2 Star- One Star, A Flat water award that demonstrates an individual has basic boat control and foundation skills. The one star can be taken in any kind of paddle sport craft (e.g. sit-on-top, slalom C2, polo boat, sea kayak, racing canoe etc), Two Star An improvement award that helps paddlers develop fundamental paddle sport skills on flat water. The emphasis is on gaining a breadth of experience, creating the desired movement of the boat and developing an understanding into how the paddle, boat and water interact. This award is significantly different to the old 2 star, with a change to develop generic movement skills that can transfer to any discipline and with an assessed journey. Assessors will need to be able to assess the award in a variety of craft. - BCU 3 Star Awards: Unlike the existing award this will be discipline specific with awards in Sea, Surf, Canoe, WW Kayak, FW Kayak and some of the competitive disciplines. The three star paddler will be a competent performer in sheltered to moderate water environments and have the ability to paddle unsupervised, with similar standard paddlers on sheltered water. The new award will look similar in structure to the existing 4 star, but with the skills applicable in an easier environment. - BCU 4 and 5 Star Awards
