BCCC 10th Charles Hicks Challenge

Sunday 3rd November 2019.

A massive thank you to participants, volunteers and organisers of the 10th Charles Hicks Challenge.  The clue is in the title of the race.  It was a challenge.  But we counted them all out and we counted them all in, no retirements out of 44 boats!

BCCC Video Shoot
Mar 7 @ 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM

A British Canoeing video crew will be onsite on Saturday 7th March to shoot a short profile of our club.  This will be shown at the BC awards night, where we will be awarded Volunteers Club of the Year. To make the best impression, we need as many people on the water as possible.  Please put this date in your diary and do plan on putting a boat on the water at the club on the 7th. Our award celebrates the breadth of disciplines we offer, so any boat type that you are competent to paddle would be much appreciated.  Session organisers… if there is any possibility that you could do a special/extra session on 7th March, that would also be very much appreciated (let me know if you are planning something).  Club colours if you possess them would also be highly desirable.  9.30am is our usual start time but feel free to turn up later if that’s more palatable.

If you want to be on the water on the 7th but do not wish to be included in the video, please let me know.

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.
