RESULTS
Report to follow.

Despite the dire weather forecast I was pleasantly suprised to see 24 off the 27 entrants arrive for an early start.

We were treated to some of the best competition conditions this year .

Light variable wind 80% +cloud and 15 -18 degree temperature ,

With the Sun blocked behind dense cloud thermals were difficult to locate, height and air reading skills prior to launch proved critical .

Of the 15 slots flown only one was flown out by the majority of pilots.

All other slots only 2-3 off the 9 competitors made full time and landing.

Congratulations to winner Colin Paddon  ,  2nd Kieth Fisher,   3rd Shane Alce

 

I must thank Colin & Kevin as we work as a team to organise each competition.

Mike Connell for his photos throughout the season and for sharing them on social media .

AND also our new competitors and friends  Mike Smith & Shane Alce I hope you both enjoyed the day 

 

I would further like to thank Colin for the time and effort he has put into researching  ,purchasing and testing the equipment we now use to run our F5J comps 

Sundays Comp was the first we have run entirely wireless ,everything ran faultlessly ,Along with Gliderscore .

With the correct equipment and no wires to trip over life as a CD can become a little less stressful.

Cheers Graham
