The International 10 Square Metre Canoe is the world's fastest single-handed
monohull sailing dinghy, with a unique feature of a sliding seat that enables
the helmsman to place his or her weight a long way out from the side of the
hull. This makes the International Canoe (IC) an exhilarating and challenging
boat to sail.
