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

For the first time since 1973, Muotathal again has the honour of welcoming the Canoe World Championships. 
Muotathal is one of the ten largest communes in Switzerland by area, covering a total of 172 km2; however, having only 3600 inhabitants it is sparsely populated and much of it is nature at its most natural. Ried and Bisisthal also form part of the Muotathal district. http://www.wm-muota2018.ch/en/home/ -

STOP PRESS: Wavehopper Championships. New Date & Venue

The Wavehopper Championships has been cancelled for today because of the overnight snow. The Championships will run and is now confirmed for next Saturday 24th March. Hopefully the snow and ice will be a distant memory by then! We also have the Burrs race for those in the North on the Sunday 25th - another great venue.
This is a Great race for novices, offering a taste of sprint racing on grade 2 water. Each race consists of two timed runs, your fastest time counts) each paddler sets off in 1min intervals and race against the clock
