The Leadership and Raft Guide awards course guide is also well worth reading.
On this optional training course we’ll look at skills required to lead groups of open canoeists on lochs in winds above force 4 (or on the sea with winds up to force 4 and up to 2 knots of tidal flow). This will include sailing, rafting, poling and tracking as well all the paddling skills and tactics required to manoeuvre in advanced conditions. Conditions permitting we’ll head out one evening to look at navigating and leading a group in the dark.
We’ll think about leadership; ways to balance the ability of the group and the demands of the environment, supporting them when they find it hard and adding in challenge if it’s too easy. We’ll also consider what to do if it all goes wrong, rescuing both individual canoes and rafts.
