As a club we have the facilities for people to learn Wild Water racing,
we can provide all the equipment you need. We practice white water and
moving water skills at
Harefield and at the new site we are developing at
Little Britain, near Uxbridge.
WE travel extensively throughout Britain to gain experience on rivers
and to enter events. We also take part in events in other countries to
broaden our experience and to enjoy the sport and have fun trips away
You do not need to have any experience to take up this sport, just
