Guilin World Cup: 16 to 20 August 2017

This is the Asian leg of the IRF’s World Cup series – the other two events being BiH’s Euro Cup/WC event 10 – 11 June on the Vrbas in Banja Luka, and the Pre-Worlds in Argentina in October.

China are renown for the excellent hospitality, and this event is shaping up to be as good as all the others.

Their R2 event, the Dujiangyan World Rafting Grand Prix, which was scheduled for 21 to 26 June 2017, had to be cancelled due to landslides in the region claiming many lives and closing roads.

Knowing teams battle to finance their travel to events the organisers are offering generous travel subsidies and prize money
