The Exclusive Cup

September 26th and 27th 2015  –  Newport, Gloucestershire

Congratulations to Crispin Williams, our 2015 champion with David Bareford second and Dominic Bareford third.

Anna and Tony Moloney were awarded the John William Holly trophy.

Neil Edmunds and Thomas Hook share the Omega Resource Group Trophy for the perfect 0.00 score on the Pilot Declared Calculated Rate of Approach task (Task 4).

We are also thrilled that so many new and young pilots attended this year, which included a fantastic flight across the Severn Estuary and congratulations to Spencer Collett who made his solo flight on the Sunday morning and we look forward to him flying with us next year!

Welcome to our new Exclusive Cup website. On this site you can see the results and scores updated live from the field during the event which is held in Gloucestershire during June of each year.

The Exclusive Cup’s inaugural event was held at Sudeley Castle in 2008 with sixty balloons and is an now an established annual event in the UK calendar, as the event for balloonists run by balloonists, with the emphasis on relaxed and fun flying in a friendly environment.

There is no commercial activity at our event and for those who wish to, there is some light hearted competition flights, with hare and hounds and the off target, with prizes available. We welcome pilots from across the world and particularly welcome and encourage new and novice pilots to the event.
