youtube - documentary - 400km to raise awareness of oil tankers path into Canadian fjords

As an Alaskan, I can appreciate being concerned about the consequences of trying to weave huge tankers in narrow fjords.
It's more documentary of the oil tankers and the politics than about the paddling - but it's easy to fast forward on youtube :D

Tinfoil baseball cap? Seriously! :D
Thanks for the G&M article. In the comments:

Hope I didn't offend. "Seriously"  was with "!"   Not a"? "  to indicate that there was tin foil put to good use and it was a" hook" to get people to look inside.

Took me a lot of pondering to figure out G&M. I never heard of Globe and Mail before and only found the article from Google.

I guess I can't see the comments either. Thanks for sharing that I am always  glad to see more links for adventure :)

Anyone wearing a tinfoil hat can't/shouldn't be easily offended. I was pointing out that you can see it in the video very briefly.

The Globe's comments must be clicked upon to open them up - weird and annoying.

Totally appreciate your touring finds - I had missed the Globe article.

Another Vancouver to Victoria Run was this one:

Ketchikan to Mexico.... In 5 months?  ???

Should be fun to watch.

I meant to point out these two look to be doing it prone/kneeling - I don't see paddles. Every time I watch that type of paddling my knees hurt.
I should try it up wind :D

These boys need to get going - it's Spring - enough - in Alaska and our summers are short.

Supthemag has all the good ariticles :D

Paul Clark - Southeast Alaska, Inside Passage - bears, USCG visits I like it that the paddler has the sense to know when to stop - not such a bad lesson....

Great writeup on the Yukon River Quest by Norman Hahn (same site in previous link  but new update). Great for late  night winter read as it is one page and easy on a smart phone :).

55 hours of non-stop paddling, at competitive speeds.... amazing!
Shows what is possible. I wonder what kind of a toll it takes on the body.

I've read 3 versions of this race - the 2016 race - and this was the best, most-blow-by-blow - tho' it didn't mention one of the female finishers was pregnant - wonder if he knew?

Bart deZwart taking off at the end for the win - that dude is a beastman! - but to only be 15 minutes behind him at 55 hours is amazing too. Respect to all the competitors.
