: I think there would be SO many factors in the time/distance paddled
: (boat weight, paddler/gear weight, wind, tide/current, boat
: size, hull coefficient, paddle type, etc.) that it would require
: many data points to estimate. And then you got guys like me who
: have a sail to help when the wind blows....LOL
Also, how conditioned you are. I burn more calories in the beginning of the year than later on when I can paddle endlessly with ease.
New people to the sport get tired easly.
I also burn more in a drysuit than in a T-shirt. I'm not talking about sweat but effort.
BTW: Stony Creek harbor is iced in. That hasn't happened in about 3 years. I know global warming is real but I wish it wold come to Branford.
Happy new year!
