The lunatic fringe!

River running in North Wales

White water is a very exciting aspect of paddle sport. Whether it be plummeting down a mountain stream, surfing a big wave or learning the latest playboating trick.

London may possibly be the worse geographical location for white water. However, THCC has an active and growing pool of members addicted to getting out and about and experiencing the best aspects of our sport.

Regular trips are organised to Wales and Devon as well as artificial courses such as the Olympic course at Lee Valley, Cardiff, Holme Pierpoint and Nene as well as local weirs such as Hurley. In addition members have organised trips to Scotland, Spain, Slovenia, Italy, Morocco and France in search of the best rivers.

Please speak to your white water (reps) for further information.
