The Olympic torch on route to its host city has travelled in many ways, it is usually carried by runners, I have even carried one! It has also travelled on boats, airplanes (including the now obsolete Concorde), on horseback, on the back of a camel, via radio signal, underwater, in a canoe, it has also been into space!
The boating store was having a big sale on canoes. There were lots of people there, It was quite the oar deal.
Canoeing is when the person sits or kneels in a central and forward-facing position. They use a single or double-bladed paddle. Kayaking is when the canoeist sits and uses only a double-bladed paddle.
