Read about these occasionally, someone rigs up 2 paddles with a jumper between them and uses it as a sail for downwind using the spare paddle as the ruddder.
I can imagine a tarp might work as well but not sure how you would rig that round 2 paddles.

I always wondered if a golf umbrella would work hooked on the front thwart. Anybody tried it? The umbrella could do dubble duty around camp in the rain. I long downwind runs,coasting in the wind sure would be nice.

Not about canoe camping.
Sheet for a Sail|

A sheet used for a sail works great on overnight "canoe camping" trips and certainly works on wilderness trips. It is a good way to add some novelty to traveling day after day on long trips.
