In a year of world Championships in Portugal this will be the ultimate opportunity to visit our country and compete with the best in the world in sprin.g

Canoe Marathon runs in our veins and for that reason we are hosting in Portugal one more World cup, and again in a new venue. This time we present you Viana do Castelo, a city in the north of Portugal, not far from Ponte de Lima(host of 2017 European Championships) and also not far from Prado( the venue for the 2018 Worlds).

With the goal of promotion of new venues and the marathon discipline ,as we think it deserves, we invite all worldwide nations to come to Portugal in May and enjoy this organization in 2018.

Viana do Castelo is a city of water sports, with a lot of tradition in Rowing, sailing and more recently canoeing. Darque Kayak Clube is the local club and co-organizer of this sport. Canoeing has been one of the most important sports for the city and big investments have been done, including the bid to organize this event.

The event will take place from 25 to 27 of May along with a national cup, that promises more than 500 athletes in Rio Lima.

The event will include short and long distance events in K1 and C1 Men and Women, seniors and juniors as well as a masters world cup also in K1/C1 boats.

As done in 2016 in Prado, the local organization is investing in our sport and the city hall and local club will be offering free accommodation to the top 10 K1 Men and Women from 2017 World Championships and top 5 C1 men and Women.

Also a prize money of 15.000 euros is set to be given to the top 10 kayak and top 5 canoe, men and women events.

More information shortly with the release of the 1st bulletin of the event until the end of January.
