Informative but poorly illustrated
on 31 December 2007
I purchased this book as well as "Paddle your own Canoe" by the McGurrins (5* plus). Whilst the BCU guide covers many topics I was very disappointed by the layout and illustrations. I have just purchased a canoe having spent many years in sea kayaks. The caneoing section didn't clear guidance on stroke technique and pictorially demonstrate how it should be done. Buy "Paddle your own canoe" if you want clear concise instructions supported by very good photographs.
