Welcome to Wildwater Canoeing

Wildwater Canoeing is a discipline of canoe racing, also known as Wildwater Racing and Whitewater Racing. The wildwater time trial is the purest of whitewater racing forms - the athlete, the river, the clock.

A racing performance is the result of physical conditioning, skill and harmony with the water - and is the only sport where social paddling is necessary to achieve a peak performance. Beautiful water, scenery and companionship make the Wild Water Racing experience compelling. The competitor is free to take whichever route on the river they desire, a freedom of racing unsurpassed in the whitewater world. 

Wildwater Canoeing is governed by British Canoeing

Congratulations to Team GB

Well Done to our Junior and Under 23 team now returning from the World Championships in the USA at Bryson City, Nantahala.

Some excellent team and individual results on excellent and challenging water. The team acquitted themselves well and were able to step up to the World Championship level needed. Lots of lessons learnt, extreme waters paddled and conquered and friendships made which I’m sure will endure 

Many thanks to Chris Norbury and his team for being excellent hosts and running such a great event. Also to Nicky Cresser Tem GB manager and his helpers, assistants plus friends and families – without whom it wouldn’t have happened.
