See International Whitewater Hall of Fame: Bob McNair

Bob’s Basic River Canoeing was “THE” manual in the 1970’s and 1980’s for basic whitewater echniques used by many to learn and teach whitewater canoeing. He was the founding father of Buck Ridge Ski Club, a club which was instrumental in the development of slalom racing in the United States. Through his leadership, the first inter-club whitewater slalom races were held on the Brandywine and continued annually until the early eighties.

Bob was also instrumental in the formation of the American Whitewater Affiliation, reaching out to paddling clubs across America for the establishment of a national organization to address the non-competitive aspect of whitewater. He was also instrumental in the establishment of the American Canoe Associations (ACA) National Slalom Committee, serving as a member (and chairman) for many years.
