USA Wildwater Paddlers Want to Buy Boats At the 2007 Junior Worlds

by John Pinyerd

Wildwater Committee Chairman

March 24, 2007 -- Atlanta, GA

Perhaps the most significant struggle we face in growing Wildwater in North America (USA, CAN and MEX) is due to the lack of boats. The international paddling community and the federatations can really help stimulate and grow the sport on the North American continent simply by arraging to sell the boats that will be used at the 2007 Wildwater Junior World Championships. Rather than paying to have the boats transported back to Europe, or Australia, or wherever, we would ask that you consider selling the boats for a good price in Charlotte after the Junior Words. This can be a tremendous help for Wildwater and eliminate the transportation costs.

If you want to sell you boats at the conclusion of the Junior Worlds please contact Doug Ritchie at or John Pinyerd (Chairman of USA Wildwater) at prior to the Jr. World Championships in July. We will want to know:

  • What kind of boat(s)
  • Condition
  • Price

Please let me know your questions and how I can help you.
