Your Wild Side embrace…

Wildwater Canoeing is a unique style of paddling and involves racing along a section of whitewater.

There are currently two race formats: the Rapid Sprint is raced over a 200m-600m section of whitewater and can take 45 to 120 seconds; the Rapid Classic is an endurance race of 4-10km and can last anywhere between 10 and 60 minutes. Competitors can either compete individually in the sprint and classic races, or in a team of three paddlers where they must all cross the finish line within a given time period. Racing along whitewater takes a lot of skill and power, and competitors must find the fastest way down the river by avoiding big waves and rapids.
