The event will attract around one hundred and fifty competitors from as far away as Australia and America and is expected to draw world-wide attention to one of Northern Irelands most impressive stretches of coast line.
Organised by the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland, the event runs from October 20-28 and is supported by Causeway Coast and Glen's Council. Ashley Hunter of CANI, says she is excited about what lies ahead for the event.
