Lina and mark
Lina had paddle from Whitehorse to Dawson City, 444 miles in 60 hrs, 22 minutes!
The winning time by a Men’s C2 was 46 hours, 15 minutes.
This was our longest trip in duration and distance and was our most remote.
We have got the bug for the North, its people and its rivers and we are excited for the next trip, paddling down the Teslin River from Johnson’s Crossing to Carmacks.
As the Western Canadian Sales rep for Werner Paddles, I do many different things in my job and the thing I love most about it, is my connection to people.
For the month of July, I have been working remotely in Northern Canada, in the Yukon Territory.
We made the decision that after coming up here numerous times over the years to see UNA that this would be the year for us to paddle down the historic Yukon River from Whitehorse to Dawson City.
