Clipper Canoes heading east for the Holidays

One of our newest Clipper Canoe dealers is Jenda Paddle Sports in Osgoode Ontario. In just under a year Jenda has not only become our newest dealer but also one of our biggest dealers. After spending a weekend with the Jenda crew at the Ottawa Boat & Sport Show last year it's easy to see why.

Jenda is family run business and they are as passionate about paddling as we are. That paired with the huge demographic of canoe-aholics found in Ontario made selling Clipper Canoes in Ontario a no-brainer.

The only hurtle for us to overcome was the logistics of shipping 40+ canoes to Ontario. This didn't prove to be so hard though. With a 53 foot container and a little lumber to build a rack inside the container we were able to fit 40 canoes in one load.

Some Yukons, an Escape, and the new Basalt Prospector 16' tucked away for their ride to Ontario.

The canoes should arrive at Jenda a couple days before they close for the Holidays, so its not too late to lock down a Christmas Clipper for that someone special in your life . . . Ohhh what the heck, you're special enough go ahead treat yourself.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from everyone at Clipper Canoes and Western Canoeing and Kayaking.
