  Slower for me
  Posted by: Guideboatguy on Oct-19-13 12:38 AM (EST)

I always thought it seemed slower going into the wind. What's more, it really IS slower, and the stronger the wind I'm paddling into, the slower my maximum speed becomes. You may be encountering some kind of effect that alters your perception. One thing I used to notice was that going against a very light chop "sounded faster", but with experience that illusion went away entirely. Take a GPS with you and that should set things straight.
