Dates for this coming winter league

November 8th with reserve 22nd

December 13th

January 10th with reserve 24th

February 14th with reserve 28th

we intend to run these in Eastbourne Whitesheet or Meon Valley.

This will depend on wind direction for each venue, we will go where the wind is best for that date.

West winds Whitesheet

North, South  and Southeast winds Eastbourne

East Meon Valley

hope that make sense

Reculver is national trust have no idea what the rest is probably council owned. 

We have never been kicked off while flying normally. I'll ask Thanet council maybe. The trouble with asking is they then know you want to use it !

Hello Matt

We do normally spread the Southern winter league over the three venues if possible, but last winter it was my idea (I was too lazy) to just use Whitesheet and Stu was happy to run these. 

We will let people know on this forum when to entre and what venue.

Round 1 of the Southern F3F Winter League will (weather permitting) take place on 8th November, 09.00am, venue to be announced.

You can enter on the day ( you may be first to fly!!!) but pre-entry would help. To pre-enter please go to the ESSA website and follow the link on the right hand side.

Hi all

This Sunday's F3F is off

whitesheet looks to be a wash off, I had a look at Newhaven fort on the way home today and the path is very slippery and with mor rain tomorrow it will only get worse.

Just a reminder that, weather permitting, it will be Round 1 of the Southern F3F Winter League next Sunday 22nd Nov. So far, the forecasts look like it will probably be at the Long Man, Eastbourne.
