  I hear it is slow
  Posted by: FrankNC on Mar-17-13 7:21 PM (EST)

To me it seems that the slowest paddlers are in Romanys, but I hear the Delphin/ Aries is even slower. I cannot fit in a Romany so I cannot report in person. But I do fit in the 15.5 Delphin and it is slower than a fast sea kayak.

To me it seems like it is about the same speed as the 14 foot Dagger Alchemy. I weight 230 pounds and the weight and size of a paddler can make as much difference as the conditions.

I also notice that these slower and shorter surf/sea kayaks seem to keep up with the group better when the water get choppy enough to regularly wash over the deck.
