Summer is over and our summer time trial series for 2018-19 at an end. Congratulations to all BGCC paddlers who participated and thanks in particular to our regular Webscorer timekeeper, Tony Mee, Carolyn Williams who updates the cumulative point score, and Geoff Collett, our webmaster extraordinaire. The final point score results for the summer series are available here
We'll have a short break before starting the winter time trial series, but there are a couple of things we need you to turn your minds to: first, we need regular Webscorer timekeepers. Who can help? Training will be provided. Second, we need to decide the start time and day for the winter time trials. We've always had them on Sundays. But would paddlers prefer Saturdays? And there seem to be as many views about what the start time should be as there are hours in the day. Let us know your views - but only if you intend to actually race regularly, please! Email me

BGCC's 43rd Burley Griffin Bash and Mini-Bash. Results at: BG Bash results


Due to circumstance beyond our control, we have had to cancel the event scheduled for Mylestom on 4 May 2019. We know this will disappoint some paddlers who were looking forward to a coastal break and a paddle on a great river and we regret the inconvenience.

After your Induction, there will be coaching/paddling sessions available on Tuesdays, 5:45 p.m.; and Sundays, 9:30 a.m. For more information, see "Coaching and Instruction options" under Coaching on the above menu.

The Burley Griffin Canoe Club holds 'A Taste of Paddling' session for those people who would like to try out kayaking.  The sessions are held on the Molonglo River in calm conditions close to shore.

The next Taste of Paddling will be held next October with dates to be advised.
