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

Race Levies

Race levy reminder.


Race organisers are asked to pay a levy of 50p per paddler per race for regional events and £1.00 for national events, subject to the race organiser not being out of pocket. This is a considerable reduction to the previous rule stating 50% of entry fees should be paid to the WWR committee. This money will go towards supporting other WWR events.

We trust in the honesty of each race organiser to pay these fees. The fees can be paid either by sending a cheque to:
Wendy Hockenhul at the BCU office:
National Water Sports Centre, Adbolton Lane, Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham, NG12 2LU

Cheques are to be made payable to "British Canoeing" and it is important that on the back of the cheque and in the info for an electronic transfer, it is written "WWR 2159" to ensure that it is filtered and lands into our account in the BCU system.

If you wish to pay electronically please email the secretary
