Under 23 wildwater world championship, Austria 2017

Category : Uncategorized

As I sat in the starting pool for the under 23 wildwater world championship in Austria, I never thought when I started paddling slalom in 2008 i would get to this level of competition especially in wildwater.

With my run today I did as well as I could, pulling a great run that I’m happy with coming 37 out of 40 paddlers. (Kieran Simpson)

We are very proud of our WA family of young wildwater paddlers attending the World champs in Mura Vorstadt, Steiermark, Austria.

Kieran, Demi and Genie all started paddling with AKC slalom.

Kieran is carving a career as an Outdoor Adventure Guide and Instructor

Demi is studying criminology and forensics and plans to work hard to improve for the next worlds.

Genie is studying Physiotheray in Prague and paddling White Water and entering competitions whenever she can.

If you think this is the kind of journey you might enjoy take a closer look at the Ascot Kayak Club Slalom junior program.

Scouting for the 2017 Nanga Run course is almost complete. You can see the profile for the run in the GPS track below, its going to be fun ! For those that like getting back to nature, a couple of ‘shortcuts’ between Forrest tracks will keep it interesting. Sorry there are no wildflowers in the Dwellingup area, but did come across some pretty black berry outbreaks. Those tackling either the Nice or Nasty run courses may want to have bandaids easily accessible at the finish line.

The river and some side streams are already flowing, a dry pair of shoes is recommended for after the event.

A few photos below to whet your appetite.

Getting your team sorted???? If you need a hand getting a paddler confident on smallish white water, contact us and we will put you in touch with someone with similar goals to your team. Specify age group and gender and we will do our best.

Get training and don’t forget the EARLY BIRD entry closes June 30 !!!
