27th Basingstoke Canal Challenge 2018 Results

This was held on the Basingstoke Canal on 30th September 2018, and 60 people took part from 7 different groups.  They canoed over a course of 3, 6 or 8 miles in an endeavour to achieve a personal best time; to win and to be part of the team winning the Group trophy.

The Group trophy was retained by the Hamble Sea Scouts beating their nearest rivals by 27 minutes.

‘Paul’s Paddle’, for the fastest Warranted Scouter, was retained by Joe Dodds of Hamble Sea Scouts who managed to match last year’s time of 57 minutes for the 6 mile course.

On Sunday about £200 was raised for our nominated charity ‘Accessible Boating’.   This means that since 1998 we have raised over £11,900.  This year we were sponsored by Spartan Paddlesports who raised another £100 for Accessible Boating.

Every year the sponsorship money has been donated to the Boats for the Handicapped Association (now Accessible Boating).  It was initially given to help with the building of the ‘MADAM BUTTERFLY’, a specially designed and fitted boat to help disabled people and their families holiday together.   Then came the ‘DAWN’, a day boat with the same aims.  Maintaining boats is a constant drain on their resources as they try to keep them comfortable, and of course safe at all times.

Thank you all who took part, and we look forward to seeing you all (and more) at the 28th  Basingstoke Canal Challenge in 2019 – provisionally arranged for 29th September 2019.

Full details of the results are in the attached file.
