Registration 

Any time after arrival you should present yourself to the organisers who will direct you to registration.  This process involves checking that we have full, accurate and current records of key information that helps to ensure your safety and security throughout the race. This is what we need to check: 

  1. Your name, age and COVID vaccination status 
  2. To confirm the race you are taking part in 
  3. Your email address and the mobile telephone number you will be using during the race
  4. Your Pilot inReach/Spot ID (if you have one) 
  5. Your Wing details (manufacturer, model and main colours) 
  6. Your nominated supporter’s name and their phone number 
  7. Other people to contact In Case of Emergency and their numbers

After we have satisfied ourselves that we have an accurate record of these details we will issue you with a wrist  tag that means that you will be given a race tracker when you return your completed Assumption of Risk and ‘Sign-to-Fly’ document, which we give to you after registration is complete. This ‘Sign-to-Fly’ document is already available to view and to consider in advance. Please take some time to check it out here: https://x-lakes.uk/wp-content/docs/NOTICE_OF_ASSUMPTION_OF_RISK-SIGN_TO_FLY.pdf
