#standuppaddle Washington Session, exploring the Potomac river: headed up to the "Chain Bridge" (upwind, blowing in gusts... Quite some flow at the bridge ) and back down to the "Arlington Memorial Bridge", to finaly going back to "Key Bridge Boathouse" (http://www.boatingindc.com/key-bridge-boathouse#.VER6xcls2I4) passing around the the "Theodore Roosevelt Island"..
With the "upwind" I tried some paddling technics like "choke down" (dropping your hands down) on the shaft of the paddle . on the shaft of your paddle, stroking faster and having a lower position to face the wind. Tiring, but efficient ;)
