Happy International Women's Day! Check out this Short Film by NRS X Chicas al Agua showing how a small group of chilean female paddlers created change within their community: "Despite growing up next to one of the world’s most famous rivers, many of the young women in Futaleufú never learned how to swim. Deep in Patagonia, where gauchos still ride horses down dirt roads, an undertone of machismo lingers. Kayaking, like any “rough” sport associated with adrenaline and risk, hasn’t really been an option. By foreigners and men, sure, but teenage Chilenas? Almost never. Chicas al Agua changed everything. A completely free program, led by an all-female instructor team, Chicas al Agua teaches the young women of Futaleufú to kayak and to care for the river. Instead of being told, “you can’t” or “you’re not strong enough,” the girls are given the opportunity to find out what they are capable of themselves."

ICF News

The 2023 International Canoe Federation Stand Up Paddling World Championships will be held in Pattaya, Thailand.

The ICF and the Rowing and Canoe Association of Thailand reached agreement following this month’s Congress to host next year’s world titles on the scenic beaches of Pattaya. The championships are likely to be held in November.

The decision to host in Thailand continues the successful push by the ICF to embrace the global reach of stand up paddling. Previous ICF world championships have been held in China, Hungary and Poland.

The titles will once again feature sprint, long distance and technical races, as well as the popular inflatables contests. There are also plans to stage a one design race, with details to be announced soon.

The RCAT organisers are promising to put on a SUP festival both on and off the water, with beach parties and local performers supporting a world-class competition featuring the best athletes on the planet.

“The City of Pattaya has no end of beautiful beaches available to host our world championships, which provides us with endless possibilities for exciting ocean racing,” ICF SUP coordiator, Hoichan Kwon, said.

“We were impressed with the enthusiasm and vision of the RCAT during our ICF Congress this month, and have absolutely no doubt they will put on a tremendous show.

“We are also excited because Thailand is also home to many prominent SUP brands, including our valuable partner, Starboard. This should remove a lot of the logistical stress involved in transporting boards.

“Our athletes expect the very best at our world championships, and we can confidently say the 2023 titles will continue our history of hosting a top-class competition.”

The ICF will soon announce details of the 2023 SUP world ranking calendar, which will provide athlete qualification pathways.
