Is Canoeing a Land Based Sport?

Unfortunately I had to reschedule today Coasteering session do to poor weather (mainly wind) and gave my FdSc students to choice of what to do in relation to their Land Based module. Now bearing in mind that Coasteering is pushing it a bit anyway as a land based activity though it is a combined rock and water activity, the consensus was to go canoeing. Rather than argue that it is a watersport that is what we did and hid from the wind on the Bridgwater Canal looking at basic skills and having a mini journey.
