My wife is a relative novice and wanted a solo boat so that she could develop her canoeing skills rather than become a "front seat only" paddler. We got a Discovery 119 from a friend and we are both delighted! We use the boat on the rivers of Northern France (Canche and Authie) which are mostly class 1 with occasional class 2 drops and the occasional weir. Initial stability is good and this promotes confident use of strokes on the onside and cross deck. As one would expect for a short boat it is necessary to use a good J Stroke to keep the boat in a straight line but my wife found that tracking was good compared to other short boats that she has paddled. Overall we both felt that this is a excellent little canoe that encourages good use of strokes and boat control.
