    Default Hi

    Hello everyone Im Adam from the Wirral.

    I got into open Canoes last year. Im a cadet instructor and did my 2* open canoe foundation course last summer! I hope to have my own canoe soon, my local Costco are getting 17ft pelican Explorers in for 390 so fingers crossed I can save up before they sell out

    Welcome to Song of the Paddle

    The Costco canoes are hard to beat for price and close to indestructible in use. True they are heavy when on the land but on the water it is hardly noticeable.

    Default Welcome

    I've got a Coleman RamX 17'. Not something to be paddled sole, except in dead calm conditions but not wrong for tandem or ww.

    May the gentleness of morning, greet your silent passage through endless waters...

    May all your winds be gentle. And for ww - May it rain the night before.
