The Whitesheet RFC presents.
South Coast Sailplanes 'Showcase day' June 16th 2019


Hi All,
On June 16th the Whitesheet RFC have invited South Coast Sailplanes to our beautiful Wiltshire slopes, and will be staging a ‘South Coast Sailplanes showcase day’.
The day has been organized as a thank you from the Whitesheet RFC & on behalf of the UK F3f community, to South Coast Sailplanes owner peter Payne. This being for his 5 successive years of exceptional sponsorship & support of the English Open F3f event,
South Coast Sailplanes are the UK distributors of ‘Glider-it’ models. For those of you unfamiliar with this name, 'Glider-it' was formed around a year ago & is a joining of the Italian company's of X Models, (all X models), Voloinpendia, (Graecalis, Cobra fling wing, Vettore), & Fulcro. (bags & accessories) .
The day has been designed for South Coast Sailplanes to ‘showcase’ a good selection of models from the ‘Glider-it’ range. Peter will be bringing along his own personal models, putting many of these in the air during the day (conditions allowing).
The day will be a unique opportunity for you to come along & have a very good look at each of these models, & have a good chat with Peter about them.
For practical reasons models & goods will not be available for sale during the day, however should you wish to purchase a model Peter will be pleased to take all orders, Alternatively you can of course follow up on any purchases with Peter in the days after the event.

Here then is the list of ‘Cracking’ models that Peter is planning to bring along (subject to change)
Stingray, Prismaray, Bhyron, Graecalis , Swift 3.2 m, Swift 2.5 m Ventus 2 c, Excallibur, Sword 2mtr DS, Funray, Vettore.

For detailed information & spec of each of these models, plus the full range of other models / goods available at South Coast Sailplanes, please visit their website http://www.south-coast-sailplanes.com/

Of particular interest to myself is the new Vettore, this being a T tail glider from Voloinpendia designed for both Thermal & aerobatic flight.

Both the Whitesheet RFC & South Coast Sailplanes look forward to welcoming you to this South Coast Sailplanes 'Showcase day' .

Regards to All,
Stu, Whitesheet Competition Secretary.

It is a shame that this clashes with Middle Wallop. Especially considering how much hassle the Ghost Squadron had in getting these dates!

Hi Cliff,
I totally agree, it is always such a shame & frustrating both for the organisers & those wishing to attend both events, when the dates of 'Cracking' events clash.

The 'showcase day' has itself been 10 months in the planning / organising, the date being carefully chosen many months ago to avoid many other nationwide events & F3f competitions.

My point is that Middle Wallop is usually at the same time every year! It is a shame that one will suffer because of the other! There is also the B****y weather!!!!!
