What's happening at the ERA

  • The Flying Scotsman 2019          5 - 7 April

  • The Adriatic Adventure 2019 18 - 29 September

    Following the success of the Baltic Classic in 2017 the ERA team has been hard at work devising an equally exciting ‘sister’ event for competitors seeking a fresh new challenge to get their teeth into.

  • World Record for ERA Team
