Each morning the voyageurs would rise at four or earlier and set out, maintaining a rhythm of 45 paddle strokes a minute, which would drive a canoe at about six knots. Every hour they rested, usually long enough to smoke a single pipe of tobacco. To pass the time and keep rhythm, the voyageurs sang as they paddled. Their unofficial anthem was “A la Claire fontaine,” a tale of lost love.
