Charles Hicks Challenge – Cancelled
Basingstoke Canal Canoe Club have regretfully made the decision to cancel the 2022 Charles Hicks Challenge. This is due to persistently low water levels and excessively high weed growth combined with the usual fall of leaves at this time of year. As a result, the BCCC committee felt they could not provide a route for the race that was safe, while still providing the right level of challenge and value. Refunds will be paid to those who have already entered, and BCCC hope and expect that the race will run again next autumn.
