Spectator Notes

Holding a paddle along the spine would not seem to be relevant to realistic on-water situations. There are various theories on the practical use of this roll including the contention that it had no practical use at all, other than as another trick for amusing your friends. But in a general sense, the more awkward a position the hunter could roll up from, the more confident and relaxed he would be in the event of an unexpected capsize. 3 points per side.
