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

Your opportunity to influence the membership review at the British Canoeing Summer Roadshow

British Canoeing is going on the road this summer to present an update on the recent membership review and to discuss the proposals around changes to the membership programme.

As part of the new four-year strategic plan for the sport Stronger Together attracting new members to British Canoeing and improving member engagement and satisfaction is one of our key ambitions.

British Canoeing has been working with the sports agency Two Circles to deliver the membership review and support the organisation’s ambition to grow membership from 33,000 to 75,000 by 2021.  The review also aims to improve membership satisfaction and retention levels.

Ahead of the Roadshow British Canoeing and Two Circles have provided headline information for members on the findings of the review, including:

  • Current membership demography - who is currently a member
  • Why do people have membership – including quotes from members
  • Feedback from research – membership survey and focus groups
  • Membership proposals - what would we like to do

The roadshow events will run through these areas in more detail and will provide an opportunity for members to ask questions about the proposals and provide feedback.

To view the membership review slides and sign up for one of the roadshow events please visit the British Canoeing website.
