This weekend three folks from the Carolina Kayak Club Got their BCU 3 star certification from Lamar at Barrier Island Kayaks. That represents a significant amount of time spent on trianing and probably a significant amount of money on coaching as well. Congratulations Ginger, Lee, and Virginia for a job well done.
Getting the BCU 3 star puts you smack in the middle of the rigorous BCU rating system and ranks you near the top of most paddlers I know as far as skill level.
