This article I found very insightful on canoeing, it says that you should always have your body perpendicular with the water, especially if you are a beginner. This helps avoid falling in. this whole article talks about how if you position yourself right in the canoe than you will never fall in.
I found that this article was helpful and when I canoed before I never really thought about where my body should be as much as I did where my paddle should be and how it moves. I will definitely try this out the next time I go canoeing and I would also recommend this article for anyone who doesn’t know how to canoe or who keeps falling in.
