Many thanks to all those who are bringing their RIBS to Burghfield. Please arrive with full tanks on the day and re-fill from the club’s fuel store at the end of the day. If you have a VHF radio please bring it with you as we have a limited number of club radios. We would like to have all the RIBS launched and in commission before 9am where possible. To avoid congestion it would be helpful to arrive as early as possible. The clubs gates will be open from 7am. Race committee briefing will be at 9am with the safety brief immediately after wards.   (03/02/2008)


Our priority is to ensure that the children are fed as soon as they come off the water so that there is no delay to the races. We would therefore request that parents and children follow the changes to the normal catering so that we can offer a faster service.

Please can you bring the correct change where possible to assist us to provide a speedy service. Lunch will be available from two locations

Main Kitchen serving 11.30 – 15.00
