British Canoeing (formerly BCU) BC Week at Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium was the original BC Week in the nation, starting back in the 1990’s and continuing until the mid-2000’s. BC Week at GLSKS has hosted some of the sport’s luminaries including, Howard Jeffs, Nigel Dennis, Roland Woolven, Dale Williams, Bill Lozano and many more.  The tradition continues!

BC 3 Star Training (Sea Kayak Award Training)

There are no prerequisites for any of the BC courses but you should have flatwater boat handling and rescues established before doing the 3 Star course.

BCU 3 Star Sea Training is all about taking our refined flatwater skills and applying them to the bouncier waters of Lake Superior (or one of the inland lakes if the Big Lake is TOO big!).  We’ll work on towing, rescues and boat control on the open water.  The 3 Star Assessment requires a separate fee payable to British Canoeing for candidates that want the 3 star certificate.  If you just want feedback on your paddling via the assessment process and don’t want the 3 Star certificate, there is no extra fee
