Abstract

An introduction to the theory, practice and application of upwind canoe sailing. This session explored how a standard river canoe may be adapted to behave like a dinghy while maintaining its function as a river craft. Applications for this adaptation were explored with regard to the potential for day cruising, multi-day and multi-environment journeying and an economical option for developing an outdoor education centre sailing fleet. Conclusions were drawn through discussion that canoe sailing offered a practical and grounded option worthy of further exploration.
