Tollymore has been running Advanced Leader Sea Kayak Assessment for over 15 years. We run our courses on the North coast utilising the Benbane Head, The Causeway, the many surf beaches and of course the many tide races found off Rathlin.

For full details of the content covered please refer to the Advanced Sea Kayak Leader Syllabus on the British Canoeing Awarding Body website.
The Advanced Leader Award is intended for paddlers who journey on the sea in areas where tidal races, headlands, open crossings, swell and challenging coastlines may be encountered. The award should be accessible to all those people who journey on the sea and should not be seen as the preserve of a few elite performers. It is envisaged that the average club member canoeing regularly, should be able to obtain this award within three years of starting to paddle.
A variety of skills will be assessed over the weekend, including:
Click HERE for the interactive Leadership eLearning will take you through some of the key principles behind the British Canoeing Model of Leadership, ensuring Leaders have a basic knowledge of those principles. This activity is aimed at any Leader.
If you are an active sea paddler looking to develop your knowledge and skills in an advanced sea environment then this is the course for you. This course will help you develop the necessary skills to safely lead and journey in an advanced sea environment.
You are expected to attend the assessment fully equipped to lead and take care of a group in advanced conditions. If you are having any difficulties with equipment logistics do contact the centre to discuss.
Course fee includes equipment and coaching. The course fee DOES NOT include food and accommodation or governing body fees.
