BLACKBURN CHALLENGE 08: The Weed Ate my Race (The Glickman Report)

Gloucester, MA -- More than an hour into the Blackburn Challenge, a 20-mile race around Cape Ann, Erik Borgnes, up front in a gang of four, spotted a small grey fin rise above the ocean's glassy surface. As the dorsal fin grew steadily larger, he began chanting: "That's a seal...That's a seal..." A physician who lives on the banks of Lake Michigan in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin - a three-hour flight from the nearest man-eating fish - Borgnes is aces when it comes to human anatomy but a rube when it comes to marine biology. In fact, he had nearly planted his paddle on the critter's head when he realized, "That's a flippin' shark!"
