For Sale. Pyranha Prelude OC1, used but still in great condition for this classic. Airbags and saddle all still sound. As it is a green one it will obviously make you more attractive to the opposite sex, even more than a red one. Too many watercraft in residence causing strange whining noise at home...

Anyone Missing a Boat and Paddle

Call me cynical but during my nostalgic hunt for a Booster the following Ebay ad has come up. To me it screams nicked and I'm sure many of the more cynical out there will agree.

I'm looking for a Riot Booster 55 or 60. Ideally fitted with the easy exit straps outfitting. Cash waiting for the right boat at a sensible price. I know what they are worth so don't be silly :-). If the boat is based in NW England then great but willing to travel for right boat.

Re: L2 Coach Prerequisites

Ginge, would the APL (Accredited Prior Learning) route be an option for you?
I'm not sure how it works but it may be worth a try.
I wouldn't hold out much hope though as 20 years paddling experience didn't count for me.

Re: L2 Coach Prerequisites

You need to have 3* Kayak or Canoe and be of 3* standard in the other craft. If you don't have the second 3* then you will also need a CPD Module. 4* won't do as 4* is a leadership award.
