Piet de Bie Memorial Walk: Medoc, Saturday 8th February

Ready for another brisk, bracing winter walk?

Weather permitting, the day will kick off with a “tailgate party” to keep first arrivals cheery and warm while waiting for everyone to gather, so come prepared with a thermos flask of hot coffee (or, whatever…). We will then offer a toast to Piet before we strike out on our walk (approximately 4-5 km)

A Day at the Races: Bordeaux Hippodrome, Saturday 22nd February

Feel the thunder of the hooves and the smell of horse sweat as they gallop past the grandstand and on to the finish line, yes this time we are going to get up close and personal !

There are 8 races (all gallops) throughout the afternoon at half hour intervals so you have time to check out the form at the paddock, place a bet and then take your seat in the grandstand to watch the race.
