Derek Collings flying his new Shadow 2 won Kent Interclub Glider 3 Multilaunch competition with Colin Boorman flying his Explorer 2nd and Alan Twine flying his new Infinity up to Round 2 when for unknown loss of control landed in the top a tree (later retrieved) so he then reverted to his Explorer 3rd. Many were away so entry was down this time
