I learned to canoe in high school in 1968. I went canoeing regularly until 1992. I was proficient in whitewater and flat water. I bought a new canoe (Old Town Discovery 119) this month. I took it out to a local lake to check out the canoe and myself. I swamped getting into the canoe. Once I was in the canoe, I was fine and surprised that I remembered the different paddle strokes. I paddled all around the lake. I saw Loons and Bald Eagles When I got back to the landing, I swamped again getting out of the canoe. I guess I forgot how to get in and out of the canoe. Any suggestions of how to get into and out of the canoe without swamping? Any recommendations of a book or video? This is embarrassing.
