The Advanced Canoe Open Water Leader is aimed at paddlers who wish to lead groups of paddlers on advanced open water journeys in canoes.

An advanced canoe open water leader uses the full range of canoe skills to move in advanced canoe conditions. They are a skilled paddler who is capable of leading paddlers in a variety of ways.

Advanced canoe open water leaders are qualified to take participants on larger areas of open water.  There could be scope for paddlers to be more than 500m from the shore and the wind could be greater than force 4. Leaders could decide to use coastal areas. These present a high risk and so wind speeds should be force 4 and below, and coastlines utilised should include frequent landings. Tidal flow should not exceed 2 knots.

 

On an assessment candidates will be expected to be able to:

  • Plan and lead an inspirational journey in a way that encourages independence and development for the group.
  • Paddle their canoe at a good standard in the top end of the remit, in wind above force 4.
  • Use a solo sailing set up comfortably.
  • Manage a group whilst sailing.
  • Rescue tandem and solo canoes whilst maintaining good group control.
  • Demonstrate skilled self rescue options whilst managing the group in advanced conditions.
  • Demonstrate their ability to manage the likely incidents that could occur.

Prior to an assessment you will be given the opportunity to contact the group members to gather information about their ability, equipment needs and aspirations for the day. The group will have at least 3 participants, ideally 4 to include 2 solo and one tandem canoe.
