Karen Knight was the reason for the ruling.. At some point the craft became a gym mat and not a canoe.
She did a lot of spectacular stuff and not all for the betterment of the sport for participation.

Hi there,

I am brand new to canoeing, so have a "new user" look. Overall I found your article very interesting and well done, especially since you are using,
* Short paragraphs and to the point - perfect length IMO
* Clear wording and easy to understand by everybody

Some comment about the content,

* Terminology: whitewater - Maybe you can mention that rivers are ranked by difficulty with a short description of each class
* Seats : a few words about Webbed vs Tractor seats. A least mentioning the difference, the fact you can have one sliding to help adjust trim, plus mention that traditionally paddlers where kneeling and that this is still a current practice (or is it not? It's not always easy to see on pictures, but I see a LOT of ppl using seats).
* Paddles : not sure if you want to cover this in this article, but since having a canoe without a paddle doesn't make a lot of sense, it may be interesting to add some educational material about them, straight vs bent, beaver tail vs round and square, single vs double blade.

Thank you for taking the time to put this together, I am pretty sure it will help a lot of people.

Best

T.
