This group is for anyone interested in building their sea kayak skill set following either the ACA or BCU philosophy. It is our hope that the group turns into a resource network for those seeking the highest paddling awards in terms of personal skills and coaching.

Although it is not the intent of this group to arbitrarily prevent people from joining, due to the nature of the paddling we expect to encounter, potential members must, at a minimum, have passed BCU 3* or ACA Level 3 or have equivalent skills level, (potential organizers must have taken BCU 4* Leader Training or the ACA Level 4 Open Water Training).

All trips originating from this group will not follow the Common Adventure Model but will be led trips, giving members opportunities to lead trips for their logbooks and also help other members by being part of a led group.  We encourage existing BCU 5* / ACA Level 5 paddlers to join as well and share their knowledge / experiences with the group.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
