Abstract: 
With the aim of forming a guideline on the optimal seating arrangement in a two-seater sprint kayak, this study compared the performance of K2 kayak crews when they were seated in their regular seating arrangement and when their seating positions were switched with each other. The performance of the K2 kayak crews was compared based on the time taken to complete a 200m trial, average power, and average acceleration. Data collection was done with an action camera, two power meter paddles, and a mobile accelerometer app. This study was on four female two-seater crews from tertiary institution teams. Results showed that when the more experienced and heavier paddler takes the back seat, a faster time is taken to complete a 200m trial. Hence, this study recommends that the heavier and more experienced paddler should be seated at the back of a K2 two-seater sprint kayak.
