What is open Canadian Canoeing?
Canoeing is an activity given to us by the American Indians. Open canadian canoe's are a great way to explore rivers, lakes and waterways. As an activity for groups or individuals canoeing is a really fun way to enjoy the outdoors.
This activity is ideal when you want to take that little bit extra load. Using large open canoes you can pack for an overnight trip or just go for a fun day or half-day
Using a specially designed sailing rig enables you to incorperate sailing into your canoe experience, just sit back and let the wind do the work.
