We regularly organise expeditions, competitions and training weeks, held both at other sites and at our home airfield. In essence, they are gliding holidays. A group of us normally stay together at a lodge or camp and get LOADS of flying with dedicated instructors, whilst also enjoy other gliding and non-gliding related fun. Every summer we have the Varsity competition against Cambridge University Gliding Club. During the Easter break we hold our annual expedition to Portmoak, an amazing ridge soaring site in Scotland, where we are joined by other university gliding clubs. Winter training camps for new members always take place at the end of Michaelmas terms. We also run ad hoc trips to other sites. Forthcoming trips are always advertised in members' newsletters as well as on our facebook page.
