Lehigh Valley Canoe Club, Inc., PO Box 20194, Lehigh Valley, PA 18002



LVKCC General Membership Meeting

Thursday, March 5, 2015

7 PM

Wildlands Conservancy




Club member, Dave Dawson, veteran boat builder and sometime designer, will lead the way in a journey to understand why our boats do what they do.

We’ll take a look at the physics behind kayak and canoe design in a talk titled “Boat dynamics, or why won’t my boat go straight?” We will look at why different boat sizes and shapes behave differently, and why there’s a seemingly endless variety of kayak and canoe designs.   The talk should help boaters understand why their own boats behave the way they do, and what features they should look for in a boat to achieve the performance they want.

Hope to see you all there!
