We have a great rowing tradition but don't seem to feature in the canoeing/kayaking (apart from some of the slalom races).

Is that because the British establishment tend to look down their nose at it and think of it as more of a recreation, not a proper sport like public school rowing?

I suspect it's more specifically because rowing's a more "organised" sport - you get lots of people doing it at once and you only need one boat for them. That probably makes it more attractive to schools (public or not).
Its due to not joining marinas or clubs
