The final paddlers arrived in Dawson City this past Saturday as the 22nd Yukon River Quest wrapped up

YUKON - The 22nd Yukon River Quest has wrapped up as the final racers arrived at the docks in Dawson City this past Saturday. 

An astonishing 10 records were broken this year, which is the most in the past, including the fastest race time collectively for the whole field. Completing their 715 km race was difficult with the most hazardous water conditions ever seen for the race.

Team Something Else Entirely arrived first and won the race. A voyageur, a tandem kayak, and a C-4 (four-person canoe) were the first boats to arrive.

With two of the same team members, they broke the previous record by six hours as they led the race from Carmacks to Dawson at 1 p.m. in 39:08 minutes. As they pulled in, Sebastien Courville, Mike De Abreu, and Eric Braul were without a doubt pretty tired after their epic trek.

Robert Spinks, was also inducted into the Great River Club by paddling 5,000 km and over in his river quest legacy.
