Russell Henry Attempts to Break Speed Record for Circumnavigating Vancouver Island

Saturday, June 7, 2014

This coming May/June, Russell Henry will make a kayak attempt to break the record for circumnavigating Vancouver Island by human power. The record is currently held by Comox's Colin Angus when he completed the trip in a rowboat in 15 days, 11 hours, and 47 minutes. The fastest sea kayak time is by Joe O'Blennis at 16 days, 12 hours, 14 minutes. Being nearly 1100 kilometers around Vancouver Island is a daunting task. Paddling solo, Russell will have to average over 70 kilometers a day for two weeks.
