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

Under 23 Pre World Championships

Subject: Under 23 Pre World Championships

This 2016 Junior World WWR Championships will be held between 18th - 24th July, on the river Mau, Austria.

 The organisers have now just confirmed that an Under 23 Pre-Worlds Event will also be run in conjunction with this event.

 Athletes wishing to be considered for this event must register for GB selection and compete at the selection event at Grandtully on 16th & 17th April. Medium competency rating is also required as per the assessment for the Junior competition.

 It is the desire of the coaching team that the event is a development opportunity and we encourage athletes within this age category to consider this. The event will be self-funded and athletes will need to be self-sufficient attending and make own arrangements, however a manager and possible coaching support will be made available through the junior structure.
