Would have liked to have seen your Calypso Contest off a winch. Remember there are more comps to come Jef.

Weather managed to stay dry all day but not pleasant – overcast with the sun breaking through only occasionally and pretty chilly. The wind-forecast for today had varied a lot over the last couple of weeks. What we finally got was low winds in the morning but getting progressively (regressively?) more breezy and gusty from early afternoon. Far more slots than usual were not flown out; lots of re-flights; lift not easy to find in most slots and with a nasty habit of not only of disappearing but dumping you in sink.

Hero of the day was arguably Mike Anders who, despite still not being on top form medically, did the scoring all day and also took on the timing when the automatic timing failed.
