Wood Week


The Mynd Wood Week Vintage Rally

13 – 20 July

We love to see the gliders that started it all, flying from the place where it all started!

The Mynd is the classic benign hill top site, with a 6km long ridge that works in winds from SW-NW. It’s the only club in the UK, probably in Europe, that regularly launches by bungee, and 15kts is all you’ll need to get a vintage glider airborne.

The Club atmosphere is legendary and the evenings are very special as you relax with a drink and a meal, gazing out at the view before you which stretches far away into the Welsh Hills!

It’s a week where we have a “Rally” style event and it’s all just good fun flying wooden gliders.  The week is run “Free Format” style with each days flying activities being dependent on the weather conditions.  Traditionally we have seen many Bungee launches and local cross country tasks being flown.

This year the event is being run as a precursor to the VGC Rendevous at Hus Bos (22-25 Jul) and the 47th VGC International Rally held at Tibenham (27 Jul-3 Aug). So why not book in for all three and make it a vintage bonanza!
