About the event

The APP World Tour is back in London for the third time and this time it will be bigger and better than ever with its partnership with Canary Wharf Group. As well as bringing back much-loved features from our previous events, including our iconic race down the River Thames, we will be offering open racing and participation for all in this jam-packed weekend on the water as the World Tour and City Paddle Festival returns to the United Kingdom’s capital.

Whatever level you are at Stand Up Paddling, there will be something for you this summer in Canary Wharf. We will be hosting SUP Yoga lessons, youth clinics and introductory paddle sessions all weekend long, as well as open races for all ages and abilities on the Canary Wharf waterways. Not only will there be endless SUP action, but there will be a family-festival-feel as we feature, live mustic, entertainment and live sport all weekend as part of our City Paddle Festival. A full programme of SUP yoga lessons and introductory paddle sessions will be released 30 days before the event, which will all be FREE.

You will also be able to watch the Pros in action as they partake in the famous River Thames race and dyanmic sprints in Middle Dock as they battle it out for champion status of the London SUP Open and chase after the…. prize purse.

As part of our City Paddle Festival, we are hosting our corporate challenge, the Nautical Mile, for teams in the Canary Wharf complex. The Nautical Mile, new for 2022, is an immersive team building experience hosted in the heart of major cities around the world. Find out more information here.

This fast paced 250m sprint course will provide dynamic action for the unique APP elimination format for Pros, Pro-Ams and Open participants. This course will feature 4 buoy turns and a short sprint to the finish line, and the elimination format will give all paddlers the chance to battle their way through the rounds to the Final in each respective division.

THAMES RACE – CATEGORY: PRO

This 15.5km distance race features one of the most iconic courses in the world, leaving from Battersea Bridge and passing through the Center of London and all of its most famous landmarks to finish at Wood Wharf, in the South Dock of Canary Wharf. This race will feature a short portage section where athletes will exit the Thames and cross over into the Canary Wharf waterways for the final stretch to the Finish. This is the Pro Distance Race for the 2022 London SUP Open.

PADDLE THE WHARF COURSE – CATEGORY: PRO-AM, OPEN & YOUTH DIVISIONS – WHERE: CANARY WHARF

This 7km course will provide a very unique perspective of the beautiful Canary Wharf waterways, and serve as the distance course for Pro-Am, Open and Youth Divisions, featuring a host of turns and technical features such as low bridges to pass under along the way. The Race will start and finish at Wood Wharf in the South Dock of Canary Wharf.

PADDLE FOR THE OCEANS – CATEGORY: OPEN TO ALL – WHERE: CANARY WHARF

This short 2.5km paddle will be a chance for everyone to come together in a show of solidarity for the oceans: aptly named Paddle for the Oceans, this course has been kept short to allow for everyone to get involved and engaged, and will feature a short tour through the South Dock and up to the North Dock of the Canary Wharf waterways. A worthy and sociable endeavour for paddlers of all levels.
