AW's own Jeff Paine is no slouch --- and here demonstrates the single most difficult of all attainments
on the Green Narrows. He selected race day to have a crowd as witnesses for proof. Impressive action.
Do you see the other racer way down-river of Jeff in the next rapid, kind of drooping over and just floating?
That fella has given up and turned downstream.

One question remains: Does Jeff go direct now, or catch the Notch eddy first?....YOU make the call!

Ok fine....tucked in here is a portion of how it really went down.
