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

Prudoe Race Cancelled 16th April

Hi All,

I regret to inform you that the event planned for the Northern Region Wild Water race planned for the 16th April at Prudhoe has had to be cancelled as the river and bridge at Ovingham is still unsafe following the floods and there is no access to the river below the bridge.

 Also the building we use is out of action and there are no toilets.
