And Then There Were Two....

Joe O'Blenis may have been the first to announce his plans to attempt to break the record for circumnavigating Vancouver Island by kayak this year, but he isn't the last. In September, Joe will attempt to recapture the record he set in 2007 (and broken last year by Sean Morely), but he'll have some competition from Victoria resident Nick Castro who's starting his attempt on June 13.
You can follow Nick's progress here, and Joe's progress here.
The current record for the 1,120 km journey is 17 days, 4 hours and 49 minutes.
