The WSA SOT Adventure Guide Course is aimed at aspiring leaders who wish to lead groups on Sit on Top kayaks in sheltered water locations. This course is certified by the Water Skills Academy.
This award fills the gap that no other organisation provides; an award that demonstrates the competence of leaders who wish to operate in coastal and river environments on SOT kayaks.
The course will identify the competence of individuals to lead up to 6 paddlers on solo SOT’s or 4 tandem SOT kayaks on Coastal and river journeys on single day trips. The WSA SOT Adventure Guide will have been trained and assessed in their ability to make judgements in coastal and river environments and the suitability of particular journeys for the experience levels of individual paddlers.
The aspiring leader should be a SOT kayak paddler with either the Irish Canoe Union 2* award, WSA SOT Skills Award or competent paddler. The minimum recommended experience to attend training is three coastal and river journeys on SOT kayaks from two different venues
