Fastest Way to Paddle

Posted by Jonathan Raab on Sep 5, 2005

I'm about to be in my first race in my Chesapeake 17LT, and wanted to know if others who have raced find the boat moves fastes when relatively flat or you do a hard lean with each stroke and put the boat on edge. I know that edging on the chimed boat helps turn faster, but what about general speed? Thanks.
