The ESOX Speed Test

Three paddlers did some speed trials of the Esox on 17th Nov. 1998 over a 7 minute course (all downriver) on moving water, but with no rapids. Between runs, each paddler paddled back to the top of the course at an easy pace, taking about 12 minutes. In general, the boats were reasonably fitted out for each individual i.e. footrest length, etc.
