  1. Bit concerned that these people are in danger of dying if they fall over

    Have they tested recovering the boat?

    I assume it has appropriate built in buoyancy – but my experience as a kid tells me that only fit , agile persons – or experts with the right gear – can get going again after an upset in a sailing canoe.

    Forgive me if I sound alarmist – but I have scared myself recently doing what I used to get away with when I was a lot younger and knew a lot less!

    Fair winds and warm seas,



    1. Yes they have. The water in this pond is also about three feet deep.

      You’re right about the dangers and difficulties of sailing canoes. Not for everyone or every condition.


  2. The capsize drill is simple.
    1. Exit pond
    2. put clothes in dryer
    3. Shower. Have a drink
    4 Go out in another boat to bring in the canoe
    She’s actually pretty safe with two people. Notice also two deep reefs. Start out reefed.
