We organise expeditions, competitions and training weeks regularly to interesting locations and at our home airfield. In essence, they are gliding holidays. A group of us would staying together at a lodge or camp and get LOADS of flying with dedicated instructors just for us and various gliding and non-gliding related fun/drinking. Every summer, we will have the Varsity against Cambridge University Gliding Club. During the Easter break, it is our Annual Expedition to Portmoak, an amazing ridge soaring site in Scotland, and joined up by other university gliding clubs as well. Winter training camps always take place at the end of Michaelmas terms. We also run ad hoc trips to Talgarth, Wales, the best ridge soaring site in the country. Forthcoming trips are always advertised in members' newsletters as well as on our facebook page.
