Bendigo Regatta

Bendigo 2 - 5 November 2019

Flyer:  icon November Weekend 2019


This event starts the cross country season at the Raywood airfield of the Bendigo Gliding Club.

Melbourne Cup is the first Tuesday in November and is a public holiday. By taking off the Monday before, you get four days. November is right at the start of the gliding season in Victoria, and sometimes provides fantastic soaring. In other years, one can lose a few days to rain.

The Bendigo Club has hosted a four day friendly regatta at Raywood since the early 1990s, laying on weather forecasts, launching facilities and setting tasks.

This event is an excellent opportunity for pilots to shake the cobwebs out of their gliders and get some practice in before the competition season starts. For non competition pilots simply an early season opportunity to go soaring and enjoy meeting up with other pilots.
