"After reading the WC reports I was motivated to get out myself.  I wasn't sure where we were in the challenge as I was away last week but well done to Barry!  Good job we are on a new challenge as I did a 45.05 today which would not have beaten Barry.  I could have got a bit more but had to get back to work.....So for Challenge 10:-

Simon Jones, F3K, 45.05, 25.07.17"

Followed by Jon
"I was also out this afternoon and I'm not surprised I got whooped since conditions were so nice... but still pleased to get on the F3K board - especially since this was my first speck out with a new model, and my third session with it.

Jon Whitmore, NXT, 9:47, 25/07/17"

Tony,

I got out this lunchtime in the sunshine.  A mix of very strong 'elevator' lift and then sink to match with a fairly stiff breeze to punish going too far back!  After a few 1 /1/2 minute flights I hooked up and followed some decent lift back and did an 8.01.  Best after that was a 3 minute.  A nice easy target for the next challenge....

Simon Jones, F3K, 8.01, 15.08.17
