Saturday 12th November - Contest day 1

Both the weather man and the chief task-setter arrived with a canoe or kayak on the roof of their vehicles. I think they will be briefing wearing life jackets. We will practice gridding again.

Friday 11Nov - Official practice day

Gridding practice went well!
Unfortunately the flying window before arrival of low pressure system and troughs didn't allow sufficient time for either A or B task to be completed.
Some competitors are local flying.

Finish Height

MINIMUM finish height for crossing finish circle has been amended in local rules to 600ft QNH.
