As a section of the Camping and Caravanning Club, all our camping events are open to Camping and Caravanning Club members (including Canoe-camping Club members) only. Anyone participating must be a member of the Camping and Caravanning Club before attending a meet.

Please remember to bring your Club membership cards to all club events, since we are required to check and record memberships are current.  We also need to record BRITISH CANOEING numbers for those who have them. Paddlers need to be a member of the Canoe-camping Club and/or one of Britain's paddlesport National Governing Bodies*.   These are needed to ensure that we are covered by the Club's and British Canoeing's insurance.
Canoeing and kayaking are ‘assumed risk’ ‘water contact’ activities, however serious accidents are very rare.
Participants should be aware of and accept these risks, and be responsible for their own action and involvement.
All participants in club trips or meets do so at their own risk, and neither the Club nor its officers can accept any liability for loss or injury of any kind sustained whilst on a Club trip, meet or other activity.

(Was R MOLE) BASINGSTOKE CANAL, Dogmersfield towards Fleet and back
Sunday 14 April 2024
Contact Martin Dunn

Please advise Martin Dunn if attending this paddle, email (preferred): This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or mobile: 07714 329271.

Unfortunately, the continuing record breaking raw sewage discharge into the River Mole over this ununsually wet winter (now spring) period, has led us to the decision to change the planned paddle to the much cleaner Basingstoke Canal. We will meet at the canal side car park in Dogmersfield and paddle towards Fleet and back approximately 9 miles. Please bring a packed lunch and drink.

Meet by 10:00am for a 10:30am launch at the canal side car park (free with height restrictor ... although we have a key for this if needed!) in Sprat's Hatch Lane RG27 8DD, W3W: rotations.thirsty.deserved , OS: SU 7778 5380, Lat Long: 51.278124, -0.886138.

This is a gentle paddle with lock portages suitable for all craft.

Either proof of Paddle UK (formerly British Canoeing) membership or Environment Agency licence is required.

Location Dogmersfield
Revised paddle. Was planned to be R Mole.
