That’s Ray McLain (R.I.P.) of Wisconsin in the stern. It appears he and his partner are 50-ing the gate, and I’m pretty sure Ray would like this picture to be gone. Ray was a good guy, very competitive, and a mentor to me and a lot of other folks. I paddled with him in the 80’s and the only time I ever saw him swim was with me in a C-2. It’s one of my proudest paddling moments! Thanks for posting this.
