COASTAL KAYAK DAY TRIP LEADER
A Trip Leader assessment is intended to provide the minimum skills and training necessary for an adult leader possessing basic paddling skills to lead a trip for participants with beginner level paddling skills. The trip should be planned and paddled in gentle conditions, with wind not exceeding 10 knots, waves not exceeding 1 foot and currents up to 2 knots. The emphasis of this course is trip leading, safety education and rescue, not paddling instruction. The course and assessment is relevant for clubs, camps, Scouts and other groups offering kayak trips.
