Dan and Alex joined me for a morning paddle around Discovery. Sunny and a light North wind with a strong ebb current. I used my aleut-inspired paddle and discovered that I can't get the top speed out of it. Good for cruising, but not for sprinting. I had to work hard to keep up with Alex and Dan. My average speed was 7.2 kph over the 15 km. you can see from the track that we got carried down with the current on the way back. I was pointing NW all the time, but going SW!
