2018 Interuniversity Gliding Competition

The Interuniversity Gliding Competition started in 1979, making this the 39th ‘Interunis’. They will be hosted by University of Nottingham Gliding Club, at the site of your choice. Preselected sites will be announced after the annual BGA conference in Nottingham! Keep your eyes out for updates on the 17th of February.

Presidents of the gliding clubs involved in the Interunis will be able to cast a vote on behalf on their club. You will have 10 days after the BGA conference to cast your vote. Your club will be contacted by email on the 18th of February.

The competition will officially start on Sunday 29th of July 2018 after morning briefing and the last scoring day will be Saturday 4th of August. The prize-giving ceremony will be in the evening of the 4th of August. You are welcome to come and fly on Saturday 28th and Sunday 5th, but we won’t score these days to allow universities for travel.

The competition, (as usual) is split between three main categories:

  • Progression
  • Soaring
  • Cross Country

This should allow everyone to fairly represent their university, regardless of their experience. Motivation and hard work is the key to success.

About the Nottingham University Gliding Club

This is one of the oldest university gliding clubs in the United Kingdom. We fly every weekend from Cranwell Gliding Club in Lincolnshire, an hour's drive away from Nottingham. This gliding club is located on the site of RAF Cranwell. In addition, we also organise trips to other gliding clubs including Portmoak in Scotland during the Easter break.

The club currently has two gliders, a twin seater Acro and a single seater Astir. We also use Cranwell's fleet when there are not enough gliders available for the day or our gliders are unavailable due to maintenance for instance.
