Slovakia declared as hosts for the 2018 Euro Rafting Champs

The IRF is pleased to announce that Slovakia will be the hosts for the 2018 IRF Euro Rafting Champs.

Slovakia won the bid to host the event in a very close competition with Turkey.

It was eventually Slovakia’s ideal R4 course, Cunovo near Bratislava, that pushed the win in their direction, as well as the relative cost effectiveness for teams to get to the location and their many years of experience in organising rafting competitions.

Slovakia were hosts to the 2014 IRF Euro Rafting Champs, so it is a location that is familiar to many. They did an excellent job then and so we all look forward to another successful event in Cunovo.

Turkey’s River Firtina – Ardesen in Rize, their proposed location, would make a great R6 location – and the IRF BOD hope that Turkey will bounce back with a bid for the 2019 ERC.
