After the success of the first World Rafting Championship in Italy, last July, Tunceli will host the Senior World Champs: Turkey 2019.

After several discussions about the uncertain situation in Sort (Spain) due to force majeure, the Executive board, bearing in mind the positive reaction that the Turkish organizing Committee is creating by building a withewater stadium and by hosting international teams for free of charge, voted to convert the Tunceli World Cup into the World Rafting Championship of 2019 thanks to the strong support of the WRF Vice-President Yardimci.
 
Teams from all over the world will paddle from 8th to 13th June in the rugged heart of Eastern Anatolia: the 3rd level river Munzur will be in flood, offering not only an amazing natural scenario that is now covered in snow but also a new semi-artificial course for RX and slalom that will be on 11th and 12th June, after the traditional downriver on 10th, the day after the opening ceremony.
 
"We are sure that the Turkish Federation and the Local Organising Committee, thanks to the strong support by the Local Authorities, will host an excellent event that will reveal the successful collaboration between WRF and Turkish Federation that since the beginning of the year is already working hard in every Rafting field from the training of its athletes, who took gold in many categories in the last years Championships, to the organization, the formation of professional technicians with workshops for guides and coaches, applying the WRF Training Programme, and the building of facilities that will host rafters from all over the world, as happened the last year in Dalaman for the international test competition" said the WRF President Danilo Barmaz
 
"We are putting lots of effort, dedication and planning into this event so we can welcome you all with warmth and affection to beautiful Tunceli and deliver a well organized event in the middle of nature." With these words the Turkish Federation President and WRF Vice-President Fikret Yardimci warmly and proudly invites all the Nations to partecipate and discover the city, where the event manager Murat Ali Alaç will guarantee a big and unique event.
 
The official Bulletin 1 of the event is already published at the following link.
