double paddle a canoe

Just a quick history. A few decades ago, you weren't allowed to race a canoe unless you were using a double paddle. The double paddle in a canoe is often thought of as a new approach, but in fact it's been around a for a long time. It's the single blade for racing canoes that is the new approach.
And for what it's worth, search the archives long enough and you'll find that all kayaks and canoes are technically canoes. For me, I'll still think of a kayak as a different animal than a canoe...But closely related just the same.
