The SSW wind put us in the South Bowel for a change which is one of the more popular sites compared to Levisham. The bowel helps to straighten the wind up and accelerates it to generate good consistent lift than would be possible with a normal straight edge.
Conditions were light to begin with but got stronger as the day wore on, before tailing off towards the end, we managed to get 8 rounds in although we lost round 9 due to wind swinging too far west.
A large turnout of 18 pilots with quite a few travelling the length and breadth of the country meant that it was a competitive day with times being quite close in each round, however Mark Redsell managed to rise to the top with tight consistent flying making the most out of the lift to take the top spot hotly pursued by Simon Thornton and Peter Gunning.
A great day out with great weather considering the time of year and some fantastic competition to keep everyone trying their hardest, well done everybody!
