Tom Todd of the NHAMC ran a sailing clinic last Saturday. While it was geared towards tripping some of us brought fancier rigs.

I actually bought a cheap Snark a few years ago with the intent to use the sail in a canoe. But, since Idaho regs require registration for the canoe if you mount a sail on it, I have delayed that experiment. If a must pay that much to play, I figure it might as well be a bigger boat.

Snark sails are pretty easy to come by and well sized for tandem canoes. DougD, Hal and Carp all use a Snark sail on a poling pole mast with another pole as boom. http://picasaweb.google.com/TommyC1Taylor/CanoeSailing#5937330602881533794

Sewing machine? Problem?|

Yeah I got a problem.

The Snark actually makes a passable solo canoe, when the wind dies. Ugly, as canoes go - but paddles okay.
That looks like fun|

Even for someone who knows nothing about sailing - something else to try sometime.
Careful there, Eck.|

I have it on good authority that canoe sails are a gateway drug....
