CANCELLED Thames Barrier Closure trip on the non-tidal Thames
Sep 23 all-day

Unfortunately we have had to cancel this event due to the very poor weather forecasts. Very high wind gusts forecast would not have made for a safe trip. Sorry. This unusual opportunity to paddle the Thames without any tide is one not to be missed. Contact Debbie Carpenter for more information.

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.
