Took a day off work to try out my new three-piece carbon fibre Greenland paddle from Northern Lights (http://www.northernlightpaddles.com/the-paddles/). Today was less windy and the sun was to show up. Temperatures around the freezing point.
More or less the first time I tried a Greenland paddle, but I have read up on how to use it.
The paddle is really beautiful, smooth and with a perfect grip. Even considering I had to wear gloves due to the temperature.
I think I managed decently. Taking my time, I am doing the same speed as usual judging by the GPS (i.e. 5-7 km/h).
