'A canoe really doesn't want to stay on a straight line. Wind and waves almost seem to have a mind of their own of where the canoe should go. So the person steering from the stern needs to adjust direction and momentum several strokes ahead. Small and steady course corrections keep you most closely to your desired route.'
