What is a C-1?

Pardon my ignorance, but I found a kayak on Craigslist that says that it has been "converted to C-1." I emailed the dude and he hasn't gotten back to me. What does "C-1" mean?

A C-1 is a decked canoe for one person. Decked means it has a covered top with an opening for the paddler. It looks a lot like a single person kayak but is paddled with a single blade canoe paddle, you paddle from a kneeling position as you would a open canoe.

Kayaks K-1, K-2 on the other hand are paddle with a two bladed paddle usually from a prone sitting position.

Here is a wiki definition....

Ah. Thank you. That's not what I'm into and I'm assuming it's not a modification that would be easy or worthwhile to reverse.

Go to YouTube and type in "Canoe Slalom Singles, London 2012". Pretty amazing things these paddlers do with a single blade and on their knees. Colorado's own Kent Ford is the "master".

Kent is also a world class K-1

boater as well. Maybe best known for his C-1 expertise but he is just as good in a kayak.
