Greetings from FB Canoe Racing!! 

This summer, we will once again be hosting the ACA Whitewater Open Canoe Downriver National Championships. This time, they will be held from JUNE 19th to 22nd on the Nantahala River. 

While these Championships have been contested on the Nantahala many times in the past, the event is returning for the first time in nine years. In addition, the sprint course will be up top for the first time, through Patton’s Run Rapid. Canoe racing is truly a sport for all ages (minimum age 10, per ACA rules) and we are determined to get competitors in all age groups for this race. 

Check the web site ( for details about the MVP ("Most Venerable Paddler”) award. William and Lynne McDuffie are looking forward to hosting the return of the WWOCD Nationals to the Nantahala River!

Please mark your new calendars and help us spread the word. If you have questions not answered by the web site, send me an e-mail:
