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

Grandtully Christmas Training

The Grandtully Christmas WWR training event will be held between 28th-30th December.

Please notify Paul Anderson if you intend to attend - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 The event will be based in total on moving water. Conditions of late have been high and paddlers need to be able to cope with grade 3-4 water in a racing boat. We anticipate good water levels.

Juniors will need to be the responsibility of a parent or adult and transport will be required to move up and down the river. A parental consent form will need to be completed on the day.

Meet on Monday the 28th at the SCA car park at Grandtully 09.30am but be prepared to paddle soon after. There will be a cost charged of 10 pounds per athlete to cover costs.

 We should have use of showers and side room but winter wear is essential.
