Slope Glide 2013 - Hole Of Horcum

Fantastic weekend at Slope Glide 2013, two brilliant days of slope soaring heaven on the North Yorkshire Moors flying F3F and some Slope Aerobatics (well only two guys flew aerobatics). Only had time to do a little video at the end of the first day, just too busy flying and enjoying myself. Got a little more of the second days F3F racing still to come, but here is a short video of the Dark Lord putting his Dorado through its paces.

Well here is the second day of flying F3F in the South Bowl with strong wind, but not always square to the slope made the air a little variable. I had a reasonable day with another sub 40 and managed to win two rounds but only finished towards the bottom of the rankings in 10th out of 16, but that's F3F for you!

I still had a great time and enjoyed it immensely, very relaxed and easy going competition and we flew an amazing twenty rounds over the two days, don't think we'll be repeating that again any time soon. Thanks to Martin Newnham for the results, you can check out his report and the final results on his blog.
