So when I'm running three star and four star canoe there's an element of sailing involved. Now it's supposed to be improvised sailing, but I've discovered a way to make canoe sailing really cool.

Thanks to Blutak from Song of the Paddle I now have this fantastic Jolly Roger sail. He may not thank me for showing this off in case everyone wants one - it was quite a fiddly job apparently!
Some of the students made quite a good job of 'improvised sails' - Others were not so great!
Although the wind died a little we had great fun, broadsiding each other........
.................and storming the castle!
The only downside to this awesome piece of kit, is that I spend the whole day speaking like a pirate, Arrrgghh - and inexplicably I've taken to wearing an earing!!!!
