The Hovercraft Club of Great Britain celebrates its 50th Birthday in July 2016

The theme of our 50th Anniversary is to celebrate many of the different things the HCGB has done over the years. Join us for 2 fabulous weeks of fun with Racing and Cruising hovercraft and many other events to keep every member of the family interested and happy.

Experience days of fun and varied Cruising exploring the River Thames and the Medway Estuary

From 16th-24th July, Cruising enthusiasts can join in exploring the historic sites of the Medway Estuary, ending with a Thames Cruise in Central London, probably on the weekend of 23rd-24th July. We will have a cruising base with direct access to sheltered tidal waters plus facilities for camping, caravans, nearby hotels etc., and easy to access by road and rail, so families can go off on tourist trips to London etc.. During the World Championship Racing Events there may also be a small area of the lake set aside for Cruisers to enjoy.

Experience exciting, fast and thrilling Racing in the World Hovercraft Championships 2016

The World Championship Racing Event will be held at the Tamworth Water Ski Centre in Warwickshire, England (B78 2DL) during 25th-31st July 2016. The HCGB intend to run the full agenda of racing including Endurance Racing.

We invite drivers from all over the world to compete in this exciting 5 day multi-formula racing event.

We have already run a successful HCGB national race meeting on this site and preparations are now taking place to expand the onsite facilities, operational area and race course, to suit a World Event attendance.

There will be camping facilities onsite and we will publish details of other accommodation shortly.
