Survey launched on boat standards

A team of experts assembled with Coast Guard grant funding seeks national content validation of a set of entry level, skill-based human (manually propelled) boat operation standards.

This is an opportunity to provide input into the development of recreational paddling and rowing (canoes, kayaks, rowboats, paddleboards, etc.) standards across the country by completing this online survey.

The National On-Water Standards Team, funded by USCG grants, is seeking input from recreational paddling and rowing educators across the nation on a first-round set of standards to be used to assess the performance of human propelled boating skills at the entry level.

Following the survey, the standards will be updated to reflect input from paddlers and rowers nationwide and eventually validated and updated though a national field-testing program.
