Record breaking has seen a resurgence in the last few years and it is the hope of the BBAC that this will continue with British balloonists continuing to appear in the list of World Records.
It is the work of the BBAC Records and Awards Subcommittee to make the mechanics of verification as simple and convenient as possible, and unlike some other countries, this service is provided by volunteers at no charge.
The Sporting Handbook aims to bring together in one publication most of the information necessary for the administration of records and other BBAC awards.
An online version of the Sporting Handbook is now available for download using the link below.
