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

Handy Tip for Race Organisers

A message from Becky Lovatt, British Canoeing Digital Communications Officer: 

I thought this might be useful. I've created a template for posters which you can add in your own photos, etc in a simple drag and drop format.

If you don't use Canva, it's a great tool for designing social media bits, posters, etc and it's free to use. I've also attached our logo and swoosh for you to use. Our red and blue colour codes can be found below also.

You don't have to use it, I just thought it might be useful :)
