  • Canoeing Duo Wins 7th Consecutive Marathon - WWTV 9&10 News (MI) - July 27: Andy Treibold and his partner Steve Lajoie won their seventh consecutive AuSable River Canoe Marathon in Oscoda with a time of 14:36:18. Since Treibold also won in 2007 with Matt Rimer, this is his eighth straight victory in Oscoda. So that ties Treibold for most all-time with Serge Corbin. Treibold's nine total victories also puts him halfway to Corbin's total of 18... Treibold and Lajoie won it in dominant fashion again Sunday besting the second place team by more than eight minutes.

  • Kayakers breach secure area at JFK airport - New York Post (NY) - July 26: Two kayakers adrift in Jamaica Bay with just one paddle unwittingly breached Kennedy Airport's $300 million perimeter detection system. They could have been spotted by a boat patrol — except there wasn't one. Port Authority boats don't patrol the bay at night, police sources said... The kayakers washed up on a swampy area that juts out from the end of Kennedy's Runway 4L, said Port Authority police sources. The airport's perimeter detection system failed to detect the pair, the sources said. Workers maintaining runway safety equipment found the men at 1:40 a.m. Saturday and turned them over to cops.

  • Descendant of William Clark floats Missouri River - Yakima Herald (WA) - July 24: The scale of time under which Churchill Clark operates would be daunting to many. He has two and a half months of canoeing ahead of him, he'd already been on the water for about two weeks and it took him two and a half months to carve the canoe in which he's floating. But none of that fazes Clark, who is traveling from Twin Bridges, MT to St. Louis, MO in a 250-pound handmade dugout canoe... Clark is a descendant of Capt. William Clark, a leader of the Corps of Discovery, and first learned about Clark, whom he said is his great-great-great-great-grandfather, when he was 5.
