CANOEING DOUBLES WITH BLIND PADDLERS


Canoeing with a blind canoeist is a little bit challenging, but once mastered, great fun. Some canoes have the steering pedals at the rear section, and others at the front section, thus determining where the sighted canoeist would sit. Besides the sighted canoeist doing most of the steering work, in combination both canoeists work together, under commands from the sighted canoeist, in correctly rowing and steering the canoe. Good balance and rhythm is quite an essential quality for the blind canoeist to master, quickly picking up the rowing movement and sstroke of the sighted canoeist.
