WHAT IS WILD WATER RACING
This is the perfect discipline for those that like to run rivers fast! Races are either Sprints, taking around a minute, or Classic races, taking around 10-20 minutes. Entry level races can be on grade 1 e.g. Alva, up to national and international races on grade 3/4 e.g. the River Tay at Grandtully. Races are run in a time trial format normally starting a minute apart, fastest time wins. WWR develops your whole range of canoeing skills including river craft, speed and fitness. Any boat without a rudder can be used, the specialised WWR boats are designed to be fast and have a degree of manoeuvrability. There are classes for K1, C1 and C2
Venues in Scotland include: River Tay Grandtully / River Awe / River Teith At Callander / Alva / Pinkston AWWC
