The Whitewater Open Canoe Downriver (WWOCD) Committee encourages, sanctions and sponsors amateur competition in “whitewater open canoe” at local, regional, national, and international levels.

A whitewater open canoe is a traditional open Canadian or Native American canoe, which is a boat with ends pointed and higher than the middle, symmetrical side-to-side, and propelled with single bladed paddles. There are two categories of canoes used in WWOCD competitions. They are defined as Stock and Unlimited. The Stock classes are intended to include canoes sold for general recreational use. In general, ABS, polyethylene, aluminum and wood/canvas canoes will qualify for inclusion in the Stock classes (assuming they meet the dimension requirements) while fiberglass/kevlar/composite and wood-strip canoes will generally be included in the Unlimited classes. A canoe MUST be or have been a commercially available, general production model to qualify for the Stock classes.
