A Blast from the past

I have been leant a copy of the 1969 “Living Canoeing” to have a read of. It’s a brilliant resource, but I couldn’t help noticing that a few things have changed since then…


Luckily, equipment has improved…





…along with technique.





Few of us will ever build our own boats…


build own boat



…or have to rely on a homemade roof rack – hopefully.





The safety gear wasn’t all that safe anyway…





…but these pioneers ┬ástill went big.




I often wonder if I’ll still recognise the sport in 40 years time…
