Lina and mark
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.
Lina and her husband, Andrew Dye had paddle the route back in 2011.

When we were making plans last year to travel up here, we were encouraged by UNA buyer, Kalin Pallett to “stay awhile” and enjoy what the Yukon had to offer after our staff clinics and on water consumer demos were completed.
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.
Our dealer, Up North Adventures is located in the capital city of Whitehorse and is one of the premier, canoe, kayak and SUP retailers and outfitters in the territory.
They are also passionate about paddling and Werner Paddles.
Here should would also reconnect with Andrew and have an opportunity to feed Tavas. We knew she would be exhausted but I did not expect to be downright, giddy.
She kept commenting on how “stupid the idea of paddling from WH to Dawson was” but each time with this intoxicated grin.
Lina had paddle from Whitehorse to Dawson City, 444 miles in 60 hrs, 22 minutes!
