The 30 year old, fiberglass, Canot du Nord, was on loan to the Canadian Canoe Museum from Paddle Canada for this event.
A clip from CBC's The National June 3, 2012 - Look for PC's Canoe at minute 2:00, described as the "Lone Canoe" paddling alongside a Maori canoe from New Zealand.

The 80 year old (who was born in a leap year, and so, as James mentioned in his interview on CBC is technically only 20), is Donald Ross.
