The Jellyfish Award

Time to Beat: 55 Days

Body Boat Blade and Werner Paddles are pleased to announce the Jellyfish Award!

A slow and meandering creature, the jellyfish became the mascot of Shawna and Leon’s 44 day trip around Vancouver Island in 2011. They are now challenging teams to go even slower, and take MORE time to explore this incredible place.

In July/August of 2017, Greg Anderson, paddler form Chicago Illinois wins the first Body Boat Blade Jelly Fish Award!  Greg beat Shawna and Leon’s old record of 44 days, taking an amazing 55 days to complete his expedition. The Jellyfish Award was originally created to encourage paddlers to be safe, take the time to explore, and truly appreciate the world around them.   The new record that we encourage people to go slower than is 55 days! 

Shawna and Leon are encouraging paddlers to be safe, take the time to explore, and truly appreciate the world around them. Life is just too short to run around something as spectacular as Vancouver Island.
