There is a day dedicated exclusively for canoeing that is celebrated in Canada. On the day, I went for canoeing with my family last year. During this time, the activities for both children and adults are free, and it is not necessary that a person has to be experienced in canoeing even newcomer can join the trip. Though I did not have good experience in the sport, I went to give it a try as I always wanted to do canoeing. The experience was fantastic, and there was many other ceremonies arranged related to canoeing on the day in a way that it highlighted the canoeing. There are many other races and boat shows related to canoeing that will create more interest in this field.
I always wanted to be a good paddler, but I was not able to get proper training due to the financial problems but still I was not ready to give up and hence I tried to learn the art on my own and succeeded to some extent. Usually on the important days related to canoeing, there will be some tournaments and competitions held which will act as a boost to the rowers as it allows them to exhibit his talent in public. Some of the tournaments that are held related to the canoeing are Annual Missouri River 340, four mile float on the green river, Yukon river quest, Annual Kayak and Wisconsin River Canoe Races and so on.
