The Explore Award is the next step after the Beginner Course. It replaces the old 2* award, and is suitable for anyone who's done the old 1*, Discover Award, or Beginner Course. The focus of this is to build the skills needed to paddle independently and to be a confident member of a paddling group. It will also build the foundations for other paddle disciplines - whether that's sea kayaking, touring, white water, or anything else.
