We run a series of events each year - Cruising, Social and Training.  This page lists all upcoming events in date order.

Our monthly club meetings are running again on the first Tuesday of each month at new venue, the Binfield Club, RG42 4HP.

Each Cruising trip has a "Deposit event" in the list below to sign onto initially so we can book charters. This will be followed by a "Balance payment event" published nearer the date of the trip.
