Until 2006 the BBCC held a boat rally every other year.
The 2006 BBCC rally took place in glorious weather over the weekend of Friday 30th June, Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July 2006. Due to a clash with a World Cup football match and other boating events, the number of visitors was less than usual. Those who were there enjoyed themselves, especially the excellent catering (and homemade cakes) from the clubhouse and the real ale and cider in the marquee bar. Entertainment highlights included Irish dancing display on Saturday afternoon and a lively music session from the Off Road Band.
