    End of Season Rally 2016

    This year we are having an end of season rally at Titford Pumphouse, rather than a bonfire rally. Real ale, live music and food - a good weekend out.

    The Society AGM will be on the Friday evening.

    If you are coming by boat, you will need an entry form, which you can download on this link. 

    If you are coming by any other means, just turn up.

    If you need more information, contact Dave Dent by email from this link or by phoning him on 07774 605336.

    Start planning your routes now - start anywhere on the BCN that you wish, and finish at Titford Pump House at 14:00 on the Sunday

    The event is open to everyone with a boat licensed for use on British Waterways canals.  Historic working boats and pairs are welcome.

    A friendly competition, starting at 08:00 on 28 May, wherever on the BCNS you want to start, and finishing at 14:00 on 29 May at Hawne Basin with a compulsory 6 hours rest.

    The winner is determined by a point system, with extra points for full length boats, butties, small crews, cruising the lesser travelled parts of the BCN.
