New Podcast - Duncan Winning OBE

Few people know more about the origins and use of the Inuit kayak than Duncan Winning OBE.

A marine engineer, he studied the kayak brought back from Greenland in 1960 by Ken Taylor and drew its design. Those drawings became the blueprint for more than forty different designs of modern sea kayak.

In 2004 he made a ‘pilgrimage’ to the village of Igdlorssuit in North Greenland with a copy of the original designs.

Duncan is Honorary President of the Scottish Canoe Association and a technical archive surveyor. I visited him at the archive where he works.

If you haven't yet listened to a Podcast, please try this one. Duncan is a fascinating talker.
