South of England F3F

Heads-up guys.
This coming week-end the 16,17 and 18 September, the East Sussex Soaring Association (ESSA) are holding an international F3F (slope racing) competition with 43 pilots. Obviously the competition will be held on which ever slope the wind dictates but so far the long range weather forecasts indicate a westerly wind which would mean the Long Man west slope. ESSA hope that this will not inconvenience any one not involved in the competition.

Day 1

Well after 10 weeks of good weather Friday started off wet and claggy, so we sat about until 1.00pm when it had stopped raining. We then went up the hill to the NW face which, of course is the furthest away. We got setup at which point it started raining again :no: Finally it cleared away and we managed to get started at 3.30pm in a stiff wind. 3 rounds were completed.

Thanks to JP, Pete and the ESSA for organising a fine few days in the South of England!

That hill was a fickle mistress but it didn't stop me enjoying a weekend with friends on a bonny hillside.

I think my start number was doomed (and the guys before and after me) but the guys at the top excelled in the tricky conditions being aggressive and tight on the turns whether they got the air or not. Inaki on day 2 was in a class of his own and the overall standard was top notch.
