British Canoeing 2 Star Award

This award is ideal for paddlers who are confident in both a canoe and kayak on flat water as you'll need to be comfortable demonstrating skills in both disciplines. An understanding of how the paddle, boat and water interact is also required.


  • You need to be able to swim 25 metres whilst wearing a buoyancy aid
  • You're required to have experience of paddling two different crafts (e.g. surf kayak, solo/tandem open canoe, slalom boat, or sea kayak)
  • You'll also need experience of paddling in two different locations (e.g. canal, river, or sea)
  • Evidence of competing in two paddlesport competitions (e.g. club level event, slalom or freestyle) OR completing two journeys of approximately two hours in length
  • This assessment is recommended for 14 years and over. Note - If under 14, the British Canoeing Paddlepower program may be more appropriate.
