Scarborough & District Canoe Club - Coached Session 13/2/16

I had the pleasure of being invited to coach SDCC on a recent lake session. We started by introducing open boating in an open and windy environment. Several technical and tactical methods where introduced to cross the open water both upwind and downwind.

Emphasis was given to group control and safety. With this in mind we had a great fun session culminating in some downwind improvised sailing methods.  Umbrellas, Pacific Sails and even paddles where brought into use.

Finally we made up the big rig using two canoes, two canoe poles and an Aiguille  4m x 3m expedition tarp. This is always great fun on a downwind run..
