Gliding and Blokart Sailing – 16th August 2019


We are pleased to announce the April 2019 date for the ever popular twin event of Gliding and Blokart Sailing in the Cotswold

Friday 16th August 2019
Cotswold Gliding Club, Aston Down, Minchinhampton, Gloucester
This is an exhilarating experience.  Sure the take-off and landing seem a bit hairy for first timers, but when you are up up and away there is nothing like it.  The views over the Cotswolds and out across the Bristol Channel are simply amazing!

There’s also the chance of some stunning and truly different photography. It’s a fabulous experience. No expertise required, simply sit there and be thrilled!

After your flight or perhaps before you might like to check out something different. You have the chance to try the sport of Blokart sailing. With even the slightest breeze, these efficient crafts can get you whizzing around in no time. Its thrilling, easy to pick up and a lot of fun.

Our regional organiser, Chris Selway, is 3 times British Champion in the sport and one of the most experienced Blokart instructors in the country, particularly when it comes to people with disabilities. You’ll be in safe hands and any safety equipment you need will be provided (please note that enclosed footwear, preferably covering your ankles, is recommended). Chris can have up to 3 Blokarts available so there’s plenty of grins to be had.

To avoid waiting time we like to stagger the start times by half an hour – so the first person up will be just after 11.00am, then 11.30 am and so on.

If you only want to take part in one of the sports for whatever reason please let us know when booking in so that we can timetable the day to run as smoothly as possible
