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

Holding on to their early lead the British team stayed ahead of the German and French teams to finish in an extremely creditable third place behind the winners, Czech Republic, with Slovenia in second place. 

Team Manager Julie Lewis said "This is a great result for the girls and indicative of the hard work and professionalism the whole team has displayed out here.  They executed their race plan to perfection and achieved the result that they deserve. I'm really excited to see what the team has to offer as we move onto the sprint course, with individual and team sprints over the weekend."
