Re: 300 miles of canals opened up to Anglers

I've always found it strange that Paddling supposedly disturbs Fish, yet Anglers are more than happy to fish on Canals where the Fish put up with 70' by 7' metal lumps with propellers at the back.

If you can APL the old L3, is there a need for this qualification? Seems to be recognizing the validity of that for coaching on 'Moderate Water', unless I'm misreading you.

There was an ipsos mori poll recently, might be able to get some information out of Sport England/the BCU in relation to that. Unfortunately, you'll probably find it stored next to the levitating bacon.

Re: Kayaking vs Climbing vs Mountain Biking Helmets

I'd say that biking or climbing you stop hitting your head relatively quickly, and with a long rapid that could be a lot of impacts out of your boat. Should also be a lot easier to stop and go home when climbing and biking compared to being in a steep gorge, though there will be exceptions.

Re: HPP: Ditch pix

Incidently no real idea why it's called placing. Probably due to the same reason it's measured and ordered in meters rather than litres or tonnes. It could be placing because if you're pumping it up several stories it's not much like pouring? It's not that liquid either. As for it being in meters I...

You're still fairly early to be narrowing yourself down, but for most of the engineering courses you'll need maths and a grasp of physics/mechanics and perhaps some chemistry. I know it's a long way off, but it might be worth checking the A levels required for specific courses, and then making sure ...

Re: CST invalid though still in date?

I asked about this when I did my FSRT. As far as I understand it is something to do with the multidicipline nature of the new qualifications compared to the old. As such the CST was a single boat type award, compared to the FSRT covering a variety of boat types.

I expect the main reason is because of the stick from the drain even stagnant water stinks maybe not as bad as effluent.
