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

Prudhoe and Carlisle

Plese note that Prudhoe will run on Sat 13th April (organiser Nicky Cresser), and Carlisle will run on the day after, Sunday 14th April, organised by Zoe Southern.

So another opportunity for a whole weekend of paddling and racing suitable particularly for the less confident. All tyoes of boats welcome. The events will be both wavehopper and regional races.
