Open Canadian Canoe Sailing- Coniston Water
What is an Canadian Canoe?
Open Canadian canoes are large open boats with two to three seats in them and bouyancy tanks at either end. Canoeing is an activity given to us by the American Indians open Canadian canoeing is a great way to explore the rivers lakes and waterways.
Rafting two canoes together makes a really stable craft which is almost impossible to turn over unless you really tried hard!
Using a specially designed sailing rig enables you to incorporate sailing into your canoe experience. Your group will help rig the A - frames and ropes which the sail will be hoisted up. Its a little different than conventional sailing more like a Viking long boat than a sailing boat. There will always be some paddling involved to get into the best position to catch the wind but once we catch it it's time to just sit back and let the wind do the work.
