Yeah, not looking bad at all. And it's odd that Sunday is forecast a bit breezier than preceding days. We definitely said Sunday when we put in the good weather order.

Thanks to you for coming (a 2hour each way journey) and showing me as I am with goggles for the hayfever protection and a good landing around 2:56!

My day resulted in a 9th place with the 5 rounds and a 2nd launch as shown in the image.

Was a difficult day, especially for landings but you all seemed to get to grips with it as the day progressed. 

Well done to the top three. Great result.

The new to KI SADMAC field was thankfully dry and 21 turned up to fly in what was to be a sunny but increasingly windy and gusty day.  Most just tried to hold their model into wind with only a few thermals being there or lift being seen by the flyers.  There were a few out of filed landings, one in a tree and an unfortunate collision between a landing model and another being retrieved.  In the afternoon a few flyers decided to avoid risking their models and the 6th round was not flown by consensus of the remaining flyers.
