You can still buy those folding canoes from Germany,
Warren, not only can you buy them, you can sail them!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FfDp57yO64
Looks like a rich man’s duck punt?
There should be an Olympic event for canoeing whilst smoking a pipe! Just love these old news clips.
Dave,I assume those wood and canvas kayaks used to have ashtrays.Maybe get Woodbine as sponsors?
Not only an Olympic event but also a fashion parade.Notice one gent is wearing a collar and tie with his misses (I assume – you never know with paddlers…) wearing a sensible cardie and headscarf.
All very civilised in those days.
