The Wenonah Escapade is a short, responsive yet fast tandem that is solo friendly. This canoe defines efficiency and superb performance in one compact package. The Escapade is a good fit for smaller paddlers, those who pack light, and those who prefer a shorter canoe. At 16'6" you can add a center seat to make it a maneuverable solo, as this is the most friendly length to switch between solo and tandem paddling. Truly a superior hull design and a great paddling canoe.
