Canoeing and kayaking are water sports which involve paddling a small boat. Kayaking is similar to canoeing but paddlers use a double bladed curved paddle and the kayak is narrower and lighter. In a canoe the paddle is single bladed. The main form of competition is sprint canoe in which athletes race on a straight course, each boat in a separate lane. In Canoe Slalom, paddlers navigate a sequence of pairs of poles over challenging rapids and white water. Other competitive events are Canoe Marathon and Canoe Polo.
Canoeing and kayaking don't have to be competitive and you can enjoy them recreationally at any age. Inland touring and sea kayaking are wonderful ways to enjoy the great outdoors - if you're feeling adventurous, you can attempt steep mountain streams but, if you prefer to take it easy, you can meander down the slower flowing rivers and lakes while enjoying the wildlife and spectacular scenery.
