Becky Mason - About Classic Solo Canoeing

I feel the roots of Canadian paddling go back, way back to when birch bark canoes first touched the water.

What I call Classic Solo Canoeing, sometimes also referred to as Omering or Canadian style paddling, centers on the practical aspects of canoeing. It's a well-rounded, relaxed, traditional paddling style providing you with all of the skills you need so you can travel safely for an afternoon paddle or a month long adventure into the wilderness.

Lots of great information: paddling dvd, canoe course, environmental notes, canoe design etc... in menu on left- hand side in my navigational bar.
