Passage Planning for Canoe Sailors
Even for a day out on a calm lake, it’s always worth planning the voyage properly. If you’ve thought through the route carefully, and factored in the wind, the temperature (and the tides if you’re on the sea), and the experience of your party, you’ll be better placed to deal with the unexpected when it happens. Being prepared is more than a formality. It will make for a more enjoyable outing, and it could also mean the difference between a challenging day and a tragic one.
