    WAITING FOR THE BREEZE: Two beautiful sailing canoes waiting in the still of the morning for a day of sailing to come. The canoe in the background is a reproduction of the canoe Ione from the W.P. Stephens book. The hull was built by member Bill Clements and the spars and hardware were made by member Bob Lavertue, the owner of the canoe. In the foreground is a replica of a Peterborough 18 foot sailing canoe which was built in Dan Sutherlands shop in the 1980’s. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #paulsmiths #adirondacks #wchaassembly #lowerstregislake #peterboroughcanoe #wpstevenscanoe #springfieldfancenterboard

    RESTING IN PLACID WATERS: This Huron canoe (from one of the Huron builders of Quebec) was fully restored by Michael Grace of the Riverboy Canoe Company. It was photographed on one of the many waterways of the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge surrounding the Kennedy Space Center, Florida.

    DAYBREAK: A beautiful birchbark built by expert builder, Ferdy Goode, greets the dawn on the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage in northern Wisconsin. Ferdy is one of a small number of builders keeping the birchbark tradition alive and vibrant.

    A BEAUTY REBORN: Larry Riker’s 1936, 16 foot, Old Town Yankee. Recanvassed, filled and finished with an authentic Old Town Indian Design, numer four, in 2017, with the help of WCHA Chapter One folks and some good advice from Jerry Stelmok of the Island Falls Canoe Company. The setting is on the quiet waters of Canadice Lake, in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State.

    EARLY MORNING IN THE ATIRONDACKS: Member Kevin Oldenburg captured this image early on a foggy morning on Lower St. Regis Lake just before he paddled from the alumni camping area to the first day of Assembly. The canoe is a 17 foot 1931 Kennebec Kineo Special with serial number 104018 which Kevin restored, and this was the canoe’s maiden voyage after its restoration.
