Wavering Galoppen

Wavering Down, from Crook Peak (Mendips)

Fitting finale to season

A fabulous day was had up on the Mendips in very fine weather. Winscombe's busy cricket/sports ground provided a vibrant base, with cake and clothes stalls and a BBQ. Nice luxuries to help the 20 QO's recover from physical courses and a long walk to the start/finish.

Swansea Bay Weekend

Midsummer on Gower

Low key but technical!

A gem of a summer festival, hosted by another small club Swansea Bay OC.

This year it's on the weekend of 1 & 2 June.

What areas Swansea Bay boast. Fiendish dunes test the technical skills but relaxing on the wonderful beaches adjacent is a just reward for your efforts.
