The National Watersports Festival

The National Watersports Festival (NWF) is the most popular annual watersports event in the UK. Aimed at promoting watersports among the amateurs and professionals alike, this year the festival took place from 8th to 10th June at Rutland Water. During the festival, water sports enthusiasts can participate in many different competitions, including windsurfing, stand up paddleboarding, kayak, diving, and dinghy sailing. In addition, the visitors will enjoy live music, local ale, camping and plenty of family-friendly activities at this awesome event. We are already looking forward to the 2019 edition!

Diving World Series

In 2019, Britain will also have the honour to host the elite Diving World Series event. Some of the best divers in the world will compete across four legs, and visitors will have a unique opportunity to see Olympic and World champions in action. The finals will take place 17th-19th May 2019 at the London Aquatics Centre.

ICF Canoe Slalom World Cup

One of the most prestigious canoeing events in the world, this is an annual event consisting of five races across several disciplines. Competitors collect points across all races. The World Cup Champions title goes to the competitor who collects most points in all five races.

Opening race will take place from 14-16 June 2019 at Lee Valley. Other events will take place in Bratislava, Tacen, Markkleeberg and the final will be held in Prague from 6th to 8th September 2019.

European Short Course Swimming Championships

Glasgow will host the European Short Course Swimming Championships next year. This event takes place every two years and hasn’t been held in the UK since 1998. Some of the best European athletes will compete in 40 short-course (25-metre) swimming events. The Championships will be held from 4th to 8th of December 2019 in Tollcross International Swimming Centre. This is a final swimming event before the Tokyo Olympics and chances are that new talents will emerge ahead of the biggest sports event in the world, which should make this event particularly interesting for punters.  

Cowes Week

Cowes Week has been held traditionally every summer since 1826, except during the First and the Second World War. It is one of the most popular watersports events in Britain, attracting thousands of spectators. It is a spectacular sailing event, with more than 8 000 competitors participating in races, ranging from amateurs to Olympic professionals. In addition, visitors will enjoy plenty of social activities, such as live music and parties. Next year, Cowes Week will take place from 10th to 17th August. If you are considering taking part in the Cowes Week next year, entries will be open in December 2018.
