We had six days flying, covering 27,892kms from Nympsfield to the Welsh hills and coastline, to Ely in the east, Dover on the Channel and places south west of Devizes. Some climbed to over 9,000ft, explored the clouds and wave, found convergence and good thermals. Some found fields, others gliding clubs or small airfields, but most found their way home. The longest aero tow was 360kms and the latest retrieve, after rounding Dover, was Steve Eyles and Mike Oakley in the club DG500, with Justin getting home at 01.30hrs. We think that we have a record breaking flight, with the longest competition O/R ever set and completed in the UK, by Trevor Stuart at 572kms.
News and updates will be posted here as they happen!
