Boys Only Braai Before Setting Off - Extreme Training

Chris doing his basic training for the canoe trip. Note the expert technique of holding the paddle with two hands? We had a pre-departure braai (barbecue) to chat about what to take in the canoes, the route, border crossing into Namibia and all the rest of the small things to do a few days before setting off on our 700km trek.

My canoe is an early version of Felix Unite's canoes, Canadian style but a double paddle is used. Four plastic buckets are used for buoyancy and dry storage, they fit into those holes in the cross piece and one at each end. These are stable cruising canoes, anybody can get in and go.
