Navigation update from the BCA
There are currently about 10 navigation and towpath blockages. Most of the trees are down between Queens Ave bridge Aldershot and Eelmoor bridge. There are also trees down near Blacksmiths bridge in Hampshire and also upstream of Reading Rd bridge in Fleet and downstream of Ash Wharf. The team are out now clearing the towpath as a priority, however it is likely to be at least the rest of the week to get all these cleared as we are also trying to juggle finishing off winter works in Deepcut.

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.
