Updates

Well done to our B3C paddlers who took part in the Devizes to Westminster Challenge over the Easter weekend.

The exceptionally warm weather and low river flow were a challenge to the paddlers.
Amazing performance by all who took part in this endurance challenge:

Liz Murnaghan and Vicky Metcalfe (PAN), First Ladies C2;
Bethan Davies, first Senior Single Ladies;
Nick Hobley and Chris Davidson completed in the straight through Senior Doubles;
David Everest and
Graeme Harding completed in the 4 days Senior Singles;
The Junior Doubles camped over the weekend with Lord Wandsworth College achieving 4th fastest school team.

Commiserations to Sarah Francis and Steve McCluskey (PAN), Jonny Oliver and Jacob Polden, and Rob Ames who had to retire.

It is with great sadness that we share with you the news of a competitor who died on the final day. Our thoughts and prayers are with their family and friends.

B3C Barn Clean
Apr 27 @ 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Saturday 27th April, 10am onwards – Barn Spring Clean.  All hands welcome, even if you can only spare half an hour.  The Barn has suffered over the last year while we have concentrated on the new cabin.  It’s desperately in need of a spruce up.  We’d also like to clear as much space on the right hand side of the barn so that we can install some cushion matting and a bit of a gym.  Strategically planned for after the usual hare and hounds.  Contact:  Bill Hansell

B3C Elimination Race
Apr 27 @ 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Saturday 27 April, 10am – B3C Elimination Race.  We’ve all seen the cyclists do it, where the final racer at the end of each lap is eliminated!  The B3C race will have a shorter course for GP/Tourer and a longer course for racers, but all on the water at the same time in the same event.  This event is free, with tea and toast in the clubhouse after. More details to follow. Again book online at Eventbrite.  Contact:  Pina Napolitano

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.

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.
