The call is normally left until early Friday evening to make the decision on the best possible forecast.
In tomorrows case, it is now clear that  the changing  wind direction has become an issue, together with the rain forecast for late morning.
All making for a low probability that we could complete enough rounds.

Reluctantly, tomorrows comp is therefore OFF.

That's a shame Jon, but as always a spot on decision. There was no way that we were going to get a race in tomorrow. Roll on November 👍

Regards, 

Greg

Tomorrows Winter League at Horcum is ON

WSW winds to start, 19-32 mph by the end of the day should produce some great flying on Levisham.

Meet in Braygate Lane at 9:30am

See you all there

A great day on lovely Levisham. Weather forecast was a bit off to start, with light southerly winds, making the decision to go to Levisham looking like an mistake.
However,  patience paid off as the wind increased, and turned W, well nearly, probably WSW to SW most of the day. Wind speed peaked at around 12m/s.
As we waited for the wind to settle, we ran a Round Zero to give the 10 pilots a chance to do some trimming flights.

By Midday we had steady legal conditions, and the racing started for real. Rounds we completed in rapid succession,
resulting in a total of 8 rounds  before the daylight started to fade.

Consistent flying  from Mart R give him a clear win, followed by Peter G in second, and Mark T in third.
Mark T also took the FTD with a cracking 36.20 in R3. Great results guys.

Must mention our new recruit , Cengiz Philcox, taking part in his first F3F comp. A damaged model put him out of the last two rounds, otherwise I think he would have been a lot higher in the leader board. Well done mate!

Full results :-

1 Mark Redsell 6752.8
2 Peter Gunning 6477.06
3 Mark Treble 6289.04
4 Paul Garnett 6095.59
5 Rich Baygo 6076.16
6 Steve Haley 6073.28
7 Ewan Maxwell 6035.69
8 Jon Edison 5218.09
9 Bob Dickenson 4565.0
10 Cengiz Philcox 3815.05

Full spread sheet to follow

Thanks to all for your help and patience. See you hopefully in January
In the meantime Happy Christmas to everybody

Jon

Thanks for organising John & Mark, it was a grand day out!

The forecast didn't quite happen so it was the more normal, challeniging crossed conditions on Levisham, the downwind base B being particularly tricky.

Well done to Mark R whose turns on B were top notch. Mart T's 36 was epic and Pengy's 42 was pretty sublime too 👍
