BCCC Mission Statement

The Basingstoke Canal Canoe Club is a family club offering a broad base of disciplines within canoeing and kayaking. The club encourages paddling for all ages and abilities.


Frequently Asked Questions

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

Aspirant paddlers with no experience or minimal experience (ie: a few days on a sit on top on holiday) will need to gain some training, preferably in a closed cockpit kayak. This may be possible with our club, although, as demand for beginner's courses currently far outstrips our capacity, it may be much quicker to gain basic skills, preferably in a closed cockpit kayak, at one of our neighbouring commercial centres:
Hawley Lake Sail Training Centre:
https://www.hawleylake.org.uk/catalogue/categories/adult-kayaking-taster-courses#listings
Horseshoe Lake Activity Centre: https://horseshoelakeactivitycentre.co.uk/product-category/training-courses/
You should then join the club for an introduction and be assessed, which will include a supervised capsize in a closed cockpit kayak.
Experienced paddlers or those with a degree of competence can simply arrange an introduction / assessment. You will then gain access to club facilities. Contact either b3cmembership@hotmail.co.uk
or
B3C.bookings@gmail.com.

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.
