More than two dozen paddlers took to the Red River Saturday morning in honour of one of Canada’s best canoeists.
Don Starkell died in January after an adventurous life paddling from Winnipeg to the Amazon River, a two-year journey he took with his sons, and through the Northwest Passage.
The paddlers -- canoeists and kayakers -- began this morning from The Forks and expect to arrive at Kildonan Park for a picnic around 1 p.m.
The flotilla is being led by Starkell’s sons, Dana and Jeff, and Gabby Delgado, who helped guide the Starkells through the roughest part of the Amazon journey, the ocean leg.
