Hello Everyone

395116944_F3F-SWLv1sml.png.f63573091a88988843dd0a5660e930d1.png

The Southern Winter F3F League will run this year on the first Sunday of each month from October to March, with no reserve dates.  The winter events are very relaxed, and a good way of trying out F3F, but also fun for those who have been away from it for a while!

  • Sun 4 October
  • Sun 1 November
  • Sun 6 December
  • Sun 3 January
  • Sun 7 February
  • Sun 7 March

The venue will be White Sheet for wind direction NNW-SSW.  For certain other directions an event may run in the Eastbourne area.  The weather call will normally be made on the Friday evening.

Entries will open by the Monday 1 week beforehand (entries on the day will also be accepted).  Your FIRST event entry MUST include your BMFA number and CAA OP number along with expiry date, to be sent by email to nwitchalls AT blueyonder.co.uk .   Once provided these will be kept on record for further winter league events until they expire.  Subsequent entries can be by RSVP to the BARCS Calendar event Here.

Entries will be limited to 30 unless otherwise stated when opening the entry list.  During these events social distancing is to be observed at all times.  Hand sanitiser will be provided at buzzer points.  If you have any queries please contact me or ask the CD on the day.

With the latest rule of six, where does that leave us? 

Can we claim exemption as an organised sporting event?

We are keeping an eye on the published guidance as it is updated.  In England, the recent changes relate to social gatherings, not business activity or  organised sporting events.  The guidance under which we organised the English Open has not changed.  But who knows.

I will post a status update 2 weeks before the first event (and take entries from 1 week later).

I’m planning to be in Limoux for the Pyrenees Cup on the first of these dates, Nigel, so don’t expect to see me unless France is locked down soon!

Status update as promised above, the southern winter league first event will run, weather permitting, on 4th October (managed under Covid-Secure guidelines and BMFA guidelines).

Pyrénées Cup has been cancelled, so assuming the October event isn’t also cancelled I can be there.

Sunday evening was the plan, but I don't mind opening it now as it's not exactly a Eurotour.  Entries to be made as per original post please.  Numbers will be limited to 30, so shouldn't be a problem.  I will add the entry list to this post in a few days.

Any idea on the forecast? It seems wet

Hi all, despite a good entry list the weather forecast has not been good all week and now shows rain all day Sunday on various weather sites.  It is probably no surprise but unfortunately we have to call this one off.

Let's hope the rain dose one for the rest of the Winter League for all.

Hi all, the next F3F Southern winter league is planned for next Sunday.  The forecasts currently suggest it will be suitable only for John Treble's float-equipped gliders, but fingers crossed.

Those who entered last month can enter by RSVP to the calendar entry Here.  Any first-time entrants please provide details as per first post in this thread.

Nigel, Graeme
