kayaks are usually paddled with double blade paddles, not single blade paddles.

My thought exactly. How are you gonna make any tracks using a single blade paddle? It'd take all day??

"must be able to swim". Like, if you are way ahead, can you make a snorkel stop? Actually, this whole thing sounds like a real hoot for the competitive spirits out there. I would like to have the Belikin concession at the finish line. smile

Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt
