Boathouse Inauguration

Dear paddlers

After a long time of breathing behind masks, the time has finally come – we can inaugurate our new clubhouse in Lütisburg directly on the Thur in a larger group.

With sunny and summery temperatures, young and old meet on Sunday, 27.06.2021 to toast the happy moment. And it is wonderful to see how even our founding member Paul actively toasts to the joyful moment.

And after the first barbecue, it’s not the Covid that takes hold but rather the stubborn adventure fever. Wildly diced, we walk through the riverbed of the Gonzenbach to the first KCW clubhouse (more than 60 years ago).

This thirst for action is calmed down afterwards with coffee and cake, followed by a short film reviewing the last season.

We are ready for the next 60 years.

59th General Assembly (2021)

Due to the current pandemic regulations, this year’s general assembly will take place online on Friday 19th February 2021 starting 20:00h (CET).

The regular voting will only take place online during the general assembly. Therefore we ask all KCW members to log in during the general assembly to be able to vote actively. Therefore all members are asked to check this at least 24 hours in advance.

More details will be provided in a separate communication.

Happy Holidays

The KCW Board wishes club members and all canoeists around the globe a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Enjoy this time with your loved ones and stay healthy.

Save the Sorba

The Valsesia in Piedmont is a paradise for those who seek unspoilt nature, both in summer and winter. In summer it invites you to go hiking, in winter its high mountains attract ski tourers. And in spring, when the snow melts, it becomes a Mecca for kayakers and fly-fishers.

The Rassa is famous among kayakers because the Teva Mountain Games used to take place here. Unfortunately, the hunger for energy is calling for new river constructions even in this unspoilt area, but resistance is stirring. describes the new construction project in more detail. With your active voice of the online edition you can actively support the protection of the Sorba.
