We are rapidly approaching the RIAT weekend which strangely coincides with our Under the Smoke Regatta.  This happens to be the most popular weekends for members and friends to camp out and enjoy a few aerial distractions. We will have a Club bbq and a jazz band on the Saturday evening. And the bar will be open!

BBQ.   The bbq will be lit in good time to serve food from 18:30 on Saturday.   The cost will be £5 for adults and £3 for children under 12 years old.  Please pre-book via WEBCOLLECT so that we can cater for the right numbers.  Please let us know if you require a vegetarian option. Note – all 3 Club bbqs will be in use that night

Music.  The Oxford Classic Jazz Band will play a couple of sets during the night and we will have dance music thereafter.  We are asking for a donation of £10 per family to cover the costs of the band, again via WEBCOLLECT.  

Camping.  Please get your van/tent weekend label from the Clubhouse Bar.   There is no charge for members and additional children under 12 years old.  Non-members must pay the temporary fee of £5 per night per adult (to comply with our CDC camping licence).   There will be checks to ensure we do not have unregistered campers on site.

Gate.  Please keep the gate closed throughout the weekend to aid general security.

Racing:  There will be 4 pursuit races held over the 2 days and the first start (Optimist) will be used as a start for a shorter novice race.   The Pursuit Race series is for the Don Cannon Cup, 3 races to count, additional prizes will be awarded.    Start times will be:

Saturday              First Start not before 11:30

Second Start not before 14:00

Sunday                 First Start not before 11:00

Second Start not before 13.30

Entry Fee:  Non-members £10.
