Our outrigger canoe (OC6) launch day.
OC6 training and launch day, 31st July, 2021.
A founder member, Sue Cogley, wanted the team to be able to paddle an outrigger canoe on Windermere. That day finally arrived with the help of training from Great Britain Outrigger. Siobhan and Cam took us through rigging the canoe and safety considerations before training members to paddle and steer the canoe which seats six paddlers.
Rigging the canoe and safety.
Then members had an opportunity to learn paddling technique while helms learned how to steer the canoe.
