Hello from the UK

Post by liz » Thu Sep 10, 2009 9:50 am

Hi all
A big hello from the uk, my husband & son have just completed a two year build of a freedom 15 (stretched to 16) it has taken many hours of hard work but it was worth it.
I will try to post some build & 1st voyage photos as i can figure out how to do it, i am sure we will have many questions on paddling techniques to follow as we are complete novices

Hello & welcome Liz! :applause

We look forward to seeing those pictures. Any details you can add about the build are always appreciated.

Regarding paddling technique, my favourite resource is the collection of books & videos produced by Bill Mason, and the Mason family in general. http://www.redcanoes.ca/ Yeah, Bill's books and videos are a few years old now, but the content is informative, inspiring, creative, beautiful and educational. Go to http://www.nfb.ca and search Bill Mason. It will pull up a bunch of his films that you can watch online.

Cheers,
Bryan
