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

National Prize-giving and ACM

Lovely day at the North Tyne yesterday and great to see so many athletes racing. Congratulations to all our National Prize winners and well done to everyone who won their category on the North Tyne.

We had good input at the ACM - Many thanks to Julie Lewis, Hon Secretary, Simon Wright, Treasurer and the whole Exec for putting it all together. I'm delighted to say we had an excellent review of our four year plan and ambitions for the sport and will be entering a period of consultation - taking input and ideas on where people would really like us to focus. As well as for GB we have also taken into account the direction being set by the worldwide WWR community and shared by the ICF at the Nations Meeting in Switzerland this summer.

There will also be a short consultation to fnalise our selection policy now that registration is open. All of these documents are on the website in Committee Downloads.
