International Canoe World Championships, August 2017

The 2017 Worlds will be held at Pwllheli Sailing Club in Wales, from 19th to 25th August. Pwllheli SC is one of the UKs major championship venues. There is an event web site here, and further information is available this advanced information sheet. Here is the Notice of Race, and here the full entry form. You may also pre enter/register, and see who has already signed up.

Please check the worlds web site for updates, as they will appear there first.

This is peak holiday season, and early booking for accommodation is very strongly advised.

That part of Wales is also a first class tourist area, with the mountains of Snowdonia not far inland, tourist beaches, castles, historic steam railways, mountain walks, wildlife tours and all sorts of other attractions in reasonable reach. There should be plenty of interest for wives/husbands/partners/children/parents/grandchildren/grandparents who aren't competing.

In case you are wondering, very roughly its pronounced puth-HEL-ee, and yes, you will hear Welsh spoken in local pubs and shops, but they all speak english too. It may be only 250 miles from London, but you will believe you're in a different country if you haven't been to West Wales before. I haven't sailed at Pwllheli myself, but I've competed at a championship a few miles down the coast in Cardigan Bay, and that was memorable for being paced down the reaches by dolphins, who will certainly be able to keep up with Canoes if they so wish.
