Your Progressive Canoe Award endorses your ability to apply appropriate decision making skills for a safe day out canoeing on grade 2(3) rivers and large areas of open water. 

 

On open inland water, you might be up to 500m from shore and in winds up to and including force 4.  If travelling on the sea, you would be using sheltered areas, small bays and harbours with the minimal possibility of being blown offshore.  When on the sea, you will be happy operating in force 3 winds (force 2 if the wind direction is offshore). This award should be seen as a sound basis for independently building the experience and expertise associated with Advanced Canoe Award holders.
