Following discussions with the farmer, the fields we use for bottom landing are now NOT an official landing. The farmer is still going to be friendly to people landing in there if they have to (for safety reasons), provided there are no cattle in the field, please read and adhere to the rules in the amended site guide.

Ringstead

02/08/2021

After much hard work by our sites officer (Gordon), the National Trust have announced that with immediate effect, HG may resume use of Ringstead.
All flyers are reminded that the following restrictions MUST be adhered to:

a) The rear landing field is now closed and should not be used by PG or HG for landing.

b) No more than 10 gliders are to be on take-off or flying along the take-off/landing ridge.

c) PGs should be safely stored inside yourvehicle when they are not in use.

Please remember that we do not have exclusive use of the site and must respect the other users of the site.

Failure to adhere to the new restrictions will lose the site.

Please read the Ringstead site guide BEFORE you next fly.
