The second session cocentrated on two seat open canoes. We lookes at the parts of canoe : Thwart,  gunwailes, seat,  boyancy bags,  Hull.

I took up position in the stern and we practiced sweep stroke, draw stroke, forward and backward paddle and stern rudder. 

Following some balance games, we changed places. I was surprised at how stable the boat was with both of us moving about. I took up position in the bow. The buoyancy bag in the now left no room for my legs, so I was actually pleased to perform the capsize drill. We both climbed out onto the bank and recovered the canoe.

Still really enjoying this. Next session it’s back to kayaks.
