For The Record: There never will be, nor has there ever been a "brown claw" in, near, or around, nor does the canoe movie in any way endorse the "brown claw".

Looks like Benn paddled off Gorilla during the race with that broken paddle, and then finished the bottom section of the course like that! How far up did his paddle break? That is some bad luck, but great skill to continue on with it like that.

Shane`s view:

1/3 the paddle twice the man

C-1 paddlers rocked my world this year on the river. Every time I see one of these guys doing a cross-bow boof off Gorilla or offside brace while sliding down the rocks I cringe and then must applaud and yell for them. They have put on a show of paddling prowess here for many races but this year we had a seething school. The most impressive moment of the race for me was seeing Ben Frakar paddle into the notch full intensity and focus but holding his paddle like a first time rafting guest, not because he didn't know better, but because he had broken his T-Grip OFF at GO LEFT. That’s 5 drops back in 2 substantial rapids. He paused in the eddy below Go Left for a second. Then he turned and continued down the river, TOWARDS GORILLA! I immediately thought what my reaction would have been: "I am so fucking glad I am in this eddy, now get me out of this boat!"
