Monday, 30 July 2007
Looks like another paddler was out on a night paddle without a light. As expected, he got run over by a power boat. The kayak was cut in half. It's 1AM, what were you thinking? [Link]

Sandy Robson is continuing her circumnavigation around Australia after getting attached by a 3. 5 meter crocodile [Link]

Yeah Canada! Canada is doing fantastic at Pan Am Games. We won 39 gold, 43 silver and 55 bronze. In the paddling world, they won 3 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze. [Link]

Finally, Casey Pulham from London, Ontario is going to paddle across Lake Erie to raise awareness for organ donation. The crossing is 80km long. [Link]
