Canoe Jousting: Legendary battles!

Also known as Canoe tilting, water jousting, punt jousting, Fischerstechen (in Germany: the fisherman's joust), and Schifferstechen (in Switzerland). Canoe jousting has over 4000 years of history!  Egyptian bas-reliefs from 2300 B.C. show figures jousting from boats. Care to try your hand at the ancient art?

The F.O.C.K. is hosting the 2023 Australian Canoe Jousting Championship!

Bring a team. Put on some war paint. Dress in your battle garb. And rehearse your war cry: "FOOOOOOOOCK!".

*Yes, yes, yes, we know they aren't oars. We're open to a more creative name if you can think of one smarty pants.
