Both "claims" and "the gulf claims" are instances in which the local
context is completely ambiguous and explication must appeal to a larger
context, how much larger I don't know. From the local context it is not
even clear whether "claims" is a singular verb or aplural noun, with
"gulf"  either the subject of the v erb or a noun modifier of "claims"
as a plural noun: the claims of the gulf.
