The best fun weekend of the year, with flyers taking the sailors around the area and sailors taking the flyers to sea.

Weather permitting, the format will follow the usual pattern of flyers and sailors meeting for lunch at the airfield by Saturday midday, with the sailors taken for flights during the afternoon. The evening sees drinks aboard a yacht followed by supper or a BBQ at Hornet SSC. Flyers are accommodated on the yachts overnight, and on Sunday morning they are shown the ropes at sea. After lunch, all disperse for home.

All RIN members and personal guests are welcome, whether coming by sea, air or land; priority for flights will go to those who provide boats. There is no charge as such - arrivals simply pay normal landing or berthing charges and all pay-as-you-dine.
