Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve never paddled before – can I join the BCCC?

Absolutely! We welcome aspiring paddlers as well as seasoned pros. We run training courses throughout the year to help new paddlers get to a competent level, then after that the water’s the limit.
Find out more about our training courses.

I’m only interested in “x” type of paddling – can I join?

Of course! Our members’ interests range from racing to sea kayaking and touring, open canoe and whitewater paddling. We’re cetain that you’ll find some like-minded people to tackle the water with.

Do you rent out your boats?

Unfortuately we don’t provide a rental service, but our friends at the Basingstoke Canal Authority do. However, our members are entitled to use our boats once they fulfil some basic paddling requirements.
