Trevor MacLean of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, posted the fastest overall time for the 10th consecutive year and 14th time in race history. A 41-year-old flatwater specialist who was competing in his first race of the spring, MacLean narrowly missed his seventh sub 2-hour Kenduskeag clocking. He navigated his 17-foot-long, 16-inch-wide solo kayak to a time of 2 hours, 48 seconds over a medium high water level. That topped two other kayakers, Ben Randall of Sabattus (2:08.13) and Harpswell's Hank Thorburn (2:14:51), in the overall standings. "I felt pretty strong," said MacLean. "The first 10 miles were pretty decent, it was good water so I was just trying to stay steady and put pressure on the entire way. "There were a couple of tricky parts from the picnic park on down, but by that point you've just got to get to the finish line." MacLean won his class, but his fastest overall time does not earn him a separate trophy because of the diversity of the watercraft amid the 23 different classes of competition. "We don't have many rivers like this at home that we can paddle," he said. "We'll do some long-distance races that run to the ocean but they don't have the kind of white water like this. It's definitely a different challenge."
