B3C Committee Nominations

19th July 2020

Ahead of the next AGM in November the Committee is pleased to invite nominations for the coming year. Given the current environment the Committee is assessing the safest and most practical way to hold the AGM and will communicate this shortly. There are expected to be a number of vacancies on the committee and we would really like to encourage a diverse mix of members to run for the coming year.

As a reminder the only requirement is to be a club member and you can have any level of experience in paddling or none at all! Coaches, Paddlers, Parents and anyone else are welcome and encouraged to stand and bring new fresh ideas, experience, expertise and, most important, person-power to the club.

The nomination process takes less than 2 minutes and can be completed here.

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!

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.
