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

Change of ACM Venue

Late breaking news - change of venue for the ACM. We have an excellent turnout for this week's races and because of this the committee have decided to switch venues. This year the ACM will take place at the George Hotel Chollerford in the Kielder Room, just next to the Race Start. The ACM will start at approx 1400 - straight after the National Prize Giving. The George offers good bar snacks for anyone who wants to eat there and we have the Kielder Room booked all day.
