Header Photo: International Canoe launching over a wave

The World's most popular "planker" class (boy, do I like the Aussie term for the sliding seat!). I lifted this photo of an International Canoe from the Internet. It shows Swede Johan Elfström racing his one-design (Nethercott hull) International Canoe at the 2011 Championship at Travemünder Woche. Johan finished fourth in the one-design fleet.

And from a world far, far, away, here is a somewhat fuzzy photo of the blogmeister riding "No Eyes" hard (pic from Buzzards Bay in the mid 1980's). (Photo from Leslie White)
