BCCC 2019 AGM

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update
As you all are no doubt aware, the advice concerning the Coronavirus pandemic is rapidly changing. As I write this update, I am not aware of any specific advice from British Canoeing beyond that provided by the British Government. The BCCC Committee will keep abreast of latest advice and diktats but at present does not see any need to postpone or cancel any of our programme of activities and events.

THIS MAY CHANGE

as the pandemic progresses so please keep an eye on at least one of our communications channels for any further updates.

The actions that must be taken on a personal level are well publicised and the BBC has published a good article on the subject. Can I please ask that you follow these guidelines rigorously when visiting the club or while attending any club activity. In particular, please keep the kitchen area scrupulously clean. Wash thoroughly, dry and put away anything that you use.

The government has defined a number of demographics as high risk groups; those being the elderly and people with underlying health conditions. If you are in such a group, please consider whether it is in your interest to attend club sessions and events. Conversely, if you or members of your household experience ANY coronavirus symptoms however slight, please DO NOT come to the club or participate in club activity until you are clear of symptoms, as per government advice.

You can find the latest government advice on the Public Health England website. Please note that links do change and if the link does not work, visit the home page and navigate from there.

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!

Introduction

The Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race starts in Devizes, Wiltshire, finishing just downstream of Westminster Bridge in central London, opposite the Houses of Parliament. The race has been held annually over the Easter Weekend since 1948.

The race is 125 miles long and has 77 portages. The first 52 miles are along the Kennet and Avon Canal to Reading, the next 55 miles are on the River Thames to Teddington. The final 17 mile section is on the tidal portion of the Thames.

The race is a severe test of skill, physical and mental stamina and planning which produces a memorable sense of achievement for those successfully completing it.

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.
