Adirondack Guideboat in the Great Classic Canoe Race

Here we are watching the start of the Adirondack Classic Canoe Race or The 90-Miler in Old Forge New York on this chilly September morning.  They took off quickly and had a great advantage since they had long oars and oarlocks instead of mere paddles. Adirondack Guideboats are the traditional craft of the Adirondacks and used to be at all the camps and lodges along the Fulton Chain of Lakes where professional guides would take “sports” out hunting, fishing and camping and carry the boats from lake to lake.
