Adventure sailing in in many way the most distinctive of all British open-canoe traditions. That was true in the 1870s, and since the early 1990s, this tradition has witnessed a remarkable revival... one closely identified with a remarkable series of Scottish Coastal Canoe expeditions well documented through the Open Canoe Sailing Group's Gossip.
