uuniq’s double canoe in Võhandu marathon

We had a great opportunity to test out our first wood-composite strip-plank canoe in Võhandu marathon 2019.

We are overall pleased with the performance of this lightweight & sturdy double canoe and moreover we can say that its radical wave piercing bows were fully justified. The one of a kind prototype proved to be quick & stable, custom designed seats were comfortable and longitudinal shape of the canoe – which is rather wide in the middle and swiftly narrowing towards the bows – made it pleasant and ergonomic to paddle. So in the end it was no surprise that we managed to climb up 9 points in the class ranking compared previous year, when we paddled typical serial-production GRP-canoe – all despite the fact that water level and speed in Võhandu was much lower than in previous edition.
