A: At Dec 2023, we’re still working on detailed course design, and the experience requirements are a factor of that.

These will not be token short paddle stages – expect extended time in the boat. That said, our expectation is that we won’t be requiring formal qualifications, but may require some relevant quality experience, and a qualification would be useful both as evidence and to keep you safe (old BCU 3* or equivalent would be a good aspiration). We will be providing 2-person SOT’s for ITERA-lite 2024.
