The BCU White Water Award (formerly known as 3 Star White Water Kayak) training in kayaking is a 2-day course, which is covering the whole BCU syllabus.
We will try to do the course at 2 different locations which could usually be the River Ness and then the River Spey or middle Findhorn (depending on the skill level of the group).
Usually, it is expected to have your own river kayak at this level. However, we can provide some kayaks or kayaking gear if required. The course doesn’t include accommodation.
