Welcome to the Basingstoke Canal Canoe Club

Our club is conveniently located on the banks for the Basingstoke Canal in Mytchett, Surrey, with members from all across the South of England. We offer a range of kayak and canoe activities, including flatwater racing, training courses, and touring trips and expeditions. Find out more below.

Boat Hire

We are a private club and do not rent out our boats to the general public. Our boats are for club members only.

B3C Hasler

B3C Hasler is on the 19th May.
This is the biggest event of the year for BCCC and requires lots of organisation and support. So, even if you don’t plan on racing on the day, please help out as a volunteer. Generally speaking we need around 30 people to make the event safe and successful.
For racers wishing to enter please use the portal Hasler Entries.

New B3C Spond app
We are on Spond. The new way of managing regular events, such as race training, touring trips and social events. Sign up for Spond to receive invitations to events, select attend or decline, ask questions, receive reminders and see who is going. Contact the b3c.secretary@gmail.com to join B3C Spond today.

We have launched a B3C Strava Club all members are welcome to join in, just request to join using the link.
Any kayaking you have recorded in strava will be shared in the club, it will be a great way to find out what everyone is getting up to and to get more involved.
Recording your paddling somewhere else? Strava has many ways of syncing those activities [usually automatically].
Find out how to upload your Activities to Strava.
