All the details on release days, events, costs and parking can be found on the Regional Team’s website.
Throughout the year, volunteer groups co-ordinate varied boating days. Most releases are first and foremost for recreational playboating but the site also offers three slalom sites catering for differing standards of competition (including Premier and Division 1/2 slaloms) and can host Wild Water Racing races (Sprint and Classic, up to National Championship standard).
Dates of upcoming releases can be found in the downloads section on this page.
Alternatively, you can request the calendar by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the latest updates you can call the Washburn Information Line on 0845 833 8654.
Although we expect all events to take place, there is always the possibility of cancellation (too little or too much water) beyond our control. Confirmation will be obtained at least 14 days before discipline events, 10 days before weekend cruises and 7 days before weekday events. Use the Washburn Information Line above to check if in doubt.
Yorkshire Water are keen that we start collecting user data. Clubs attending are asked where possible to pre-register for this event giving club name and estimated numbers of paddlers. Please do this by emailing: email@example.com
