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

Dave Kay. One of the founding fathers of modern river racing in Great Britain. In Memoriam

Our thoughts and prayers are with Dave Kay's family and friends at this sad time.
Dave was one of the founding fathers of modern River Racing in Great Britain. He was a highly inspirational and enthusiastic force behind wild water racing in GB. He produced an invaluable and entertaining newsletter, organised events and in particular pushed all the aspiring mens K1s on.
This was the period when Ian and Alan Tordoff and Neil Stamps were starting to race. He was also one of the people behind the Wavehopper concept and getting it manufactured, to help bring more people into our sport.

Dave's funeral is today, Tues 13th Sept, 12:00 Midday .
