Dreaming of World Championships on the Muota

It was Peter Lüthi who had the vision and the drive to organise the Canoe World Championships on the Muota 45 years after their last visit. As a regular participant in Canoe World Championships he had all the experience needed, so with two like-minded friends and the support of the Zug Canoe Club he set up the  association "KANU-WM MUOTA 2018" (Muota 2018 World Championships Association) to head up this event.

All important partners, such as the Muotathal and Schwyz District Councils, Stoos-Muotatal Tourism and a number of other canoe clubs, are represented in the Association. 

Now, thanks to the support of motivated helpers, generous sponsors, Muotathal Council and friendly landowners, this dream is becoming a reality.

A Professional Organisation

The Muota 2018 World Championships Association was founded in summer 2016 to organise the World Championships and the preceding World Cup. All members of the Organising Committee are volunteers.

Vice President Peter Lüthi brings a huge amount of experience with him, having actively participated in World Championships and marathons until 2002. Nowadays he is trainer and advisor to the Swiss Canoe Team as well as being an instructor and expert in canoe sport.

By bringing the 2018 World Championships and the 2017 World Cup to Muotathal we hope not only to demonstrate expert knowledge in the organsiation of such events but also to underline the ideal environment the Muota river offers.
