Competition Enterprise will be visiting the Yorkshire Gliding Club at Sutton Bank in 2019. dates for the diary are 6th to 13th July. Entries open on January 1st 2019
All to play for going into the final day, with fewer that 100 points separating first and second. #EagleWatch was in play again after the mighty BBB flew 238km to finish 8th, trashing the dreams of many a glass glider!
Tony Maitland's trip to the Seaside.......quite high to buy ice cream however.....
Quiet day , not much happened....no, wait!! Mike Armstrong won the day with 611km. First 300km too for Pete Bennett...more to follow!!
Tough day, with 16 pilots not scoring their return to base bonus! (We don't use the "L/O" words here!) Very tight at the top of the overall leader board.
#EagleWatch was in full motion yesterday as the Eagle team flew 233 km, around 7 turning points and over the sea, to win the day! Not bad in a glider with a handicap of 68! They were still flying at 7:00pm. Only Competition Enterprise can deliver a day like that! Let's see what #EagleWatch delivers today!!
Day one task is (very hot) double string of pearls - Blue to start, hopefully puffy things later! Gridded and ready to rumble!
