“Drowned” “Amnesiac” “Canoeist”

Three words which do not describe Mr J. Darwin, of Hartlepool-under-the-stairs-en-Panama.

This story is a good example of how important it is to choose the right materials and equipment for the job – the fibre-glass canoe was actually a perfet choice, as it would have been much harder to drive a car over a plasic boat before throwing it onto the rocks.

And as for the required mindset, this Sydney Morning Herald article, found by aussie dave, explains everything.

  1. Did I mention I love this article… especially as I am now entering the world of canoeists rather than kayakers.
