Report from Jon Edison

Well now for the good news. The fog lifted, the sun came out and the wind blew onto the south slope. Flying started at 10:30 and apart from a short shower and the course computer throwing a tantrum, 13 rounds were completed. 10 very happy flyers wandered home into the setting sun ( well ok not quite, but we were dry and that must be a first! ).

Congratulations to Mark for his hard fought win against Greg in second and Ron in third.

Mark also managed the fastest time of 36.09 in a very convincing style on his first flight

The final results are:-

1 Mark Redsell Race M 12531.53

2 Greg Dakin Aris 12482.82

3 Ron Russell Viking 12017.19

4 Richard Bago Nyx 11943.85

What is wet, cold and grey all over? Answer - Fog at Horcum! Don’t remember this being on the menu. So much for our plan to have the course set up early.

Was the fog to lift only to be followed by rain?
