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.

For more information check out the agenda (translation only in German available).

Flood training on the Thur

Since a few days it is raining regularly in the region and the Wednesday training (10 June 2020) is scheduled.

So why not enjoy the Thur with a little more water (>100m3)? That’s exactly what a few KCW guys thought. Water from above – luck from below.

Flood Moesa

A strong low-pressure system discharges over the weekend of 7 June 2020 over the Ticino and Grisons. The water levels of certain white water pearls are rising abruptly.

By chance a KCW’ler was on site to catch some impressions of the Moesa (approx. 250m3) and Calancasca (80m3) during extreme floods.

Have fun being amazed.
