The 1 star is designed as an introductory / encouragement award, set at the level typically reached by most people after an introductory course with around 6 hours on the water. There are no pre-requisites and candidates do not need to be members of the BCU or Canoe Wales. The award can be taken in any type of paddlesport craft and provides those new to the sport with a clear stepping stone towards becoming a paddler.
