Saint-Pierre Quiberon / Brittany – France / Parade openig ceremony . The 2019 ICF Canoe Ocean Racing World Championships will be held in the north-west of France, at the stunningly beautiful Saint-Pierre Quiberon in Brittany. It will be the first time the World Championships are held in this region, and the first time in France.
It will also signal a return to Europe, after the previous two World Championships were held in Hong Kong (2017) and Tahiti (2015). Once again the South Africans and the Australians will be expected to perform well, especially if the conditions are challenging, but watch out for the French at home.

Jutting out into the sea for 9 miles (14km) and just 72ft (22m) wide at its narrowest point, the Quiberon Peninsula is a tourist destination par excellence. With its rugged coastline, sweeping sandy beaches, fishing villages and rich cultural history, this beautiful area of Morbihan won’t disappoint.
On the western side, the 5 mile (8km)-long Côte Sauvage (wild coast) is the perfect place for getting back to nature via a bracing walk. On the way you’ll pass hidden caves, arches and coves – but swimming is strictly forbidden due to the rough sea. The area is rich in flora and fauna, with a mix of dunes and heathland. As well as spectacular views over the coast and Belle-Île, Brittany’s largest island, you’ll encounter the remains of a Roman fish farm and a Bronze Age fort plus plenty of swooping seabirds.
Quiberon’s beaches have something to interest all tastes. The windy, sandy expanses west of Penthièvre in the north are popular with horse-riders, sand-yachters and surfers whereas families favour the sheltered beaches around Saint-Pierre-Quiberon in the south. Wherever you are, you won’t be far from someone who can teach you a watersport or hire you some equipment.
