KCW-Events In Covid-19 Times

Tours and trainings take place again with restrictions regarding group size and hygiene regulations.

Events and larger meetings are still suspended until June 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt our club activities according to the guidelines and recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health.

Stay healthy and mindful.

Respect Nature

For us paddlers nature is the basis for this wonderful sport. But many other leisure activities also benefit the environment and too much activity can lead to stress. This is why the Federal Office for the Environment has launched the Respect Nature initiative. Short video messages explain the rules of conduct for sports activities in nature – which also apply to paddlers. It’s worth a look.

Vorderrhein 17th August 2020

Whether we were overrun by massive masses of water is a matter of opinion. But with a pleasurable 40m3 this is probably already water luxury this summer – no matter if this is the Vorderrhein or another river.

It is rather remarkable that the number of kayakers was literally overrun by the amount of Canadians. Are these side effects of the Corona virus?

But judge for yourself by the following pictures.

White Water Week 2020 – Impressions

Like every year in the last week of July 2020 KCW members and canoeing friends came together to enjoy the Inn white water.

This year the whitewater weeks were a very special occasion, as it was the first major gathering since the Covid eruption. This was definitely a reason to celebrate this evening with a cosy get-together. Therefore the photos are probably a bit less filled with water this year (it had less than usual) and more with some selected impressions.

But it’s best to let the pictures speak for themselves.

Kayakers take back their Isar

The current case of the Isar river in Munich shows how urban kayakers benefit from political support. This case could perhaps also arouse corresponding desire for multiple Swiss cities (e.g. Bremgarten, Thun, Baden, Zürich etc.).

White water week coming up

On July 25th, it’s that time of year again. The KCW whitewater week takes place like every year. But in this case it is a very special occasion. This is the first KCW event after the Corona start. Everybody is mostly welcomed to enjoy this special time.
