Bill commented (in discussing reporting wind velocity--"How Hard is the Wind Blowing, Really?") that kayakers should think about and report velocities and distances in knots and nautical (sea) miles. Kayakers should think like the mariners they are. This prompts me to recycle this similar thought regarding the proper, accurate use of the terms "lee shore", "weather shore", "windward shore", "in the lee". As mariners, sea kayakers should be familiar and comfortable with these expressions, and use them correctly.
