Recommended Posts

strokes does it take the average kayaker to complete a nautical mile. please use an average summer day with good weather as a guide. i ask this ????????? for a reason. the reason is i have been using an iron bar to imitate the motion of a basic stroke as i try to build up my distance. thanks in advance

Just did this in training with two other people. I was at 996, one other was at 1226 and another at 880. There is a tremendous variation between individuals. This is useful information though to know when paddling for times when you need to make time/distance calculations in the fog or dark.

It will depend upon your paddle length, cadence, etc. I run right around 800. Best thing to do is get in your boat and paddle to get YOUR typical number.

So, is an iron bar something like a GP? ;-)
