Võhandu marathon recommend!
If possible buy your own equipments.
A good hiking kayak or canoe is an investment with a long residual value.
Even after years of owning it, the price of a well maintained boat is around 50-70% of the price you bought it for.
For 1000 € you can get a very fast and good boat. The average rental is 65 € - 150 € for boat and equipment per one marathon. It would take 8-9 participate to Võhandu Marathon to make the investment pay off
If you already own the boat you may find many other rowing marathon in Estonia and in other countries to make more use of the investment.
But what could be more fun than sitting in your boat and taking a couple of days worth of supplies and going on a hike or longer training with your personal boat.
There are many cool paddling clubs and communities in Estonia waiting for new boat owners to join.
