Becky Mason


The red canoe has become synonymous with the Mason family. It started with Bill Mason, the author, artist, Academy Award nominated film maker and canoeing fanatic. Bill loved his red canoes and was rarely seen in anything else. So when it came time to create a family website it seemed natural to name it redcanoes. Although no longer with us Bill Mason passed along his passion for canoeing to his two children, Paul and Becky. Becky has continued Bill's film making tradition with her own instructional DVDs and also teaches canoeing, writes about paddling and also is a visual artist. Becky's husband Reid McLachlan is also an expert paddler and accredited instructor as well as an accomplished oil painter.
