Flight of the Day was claimed by Richard Roberts who, launching at 4:30pm, achieved a flight of 1 hr 37 mins at heights between 2,500 and 3,000 ft which took him to Cornwall and back. Significantly, third longest flight of the day, at 22 mins, went to Karon Matten who made good use of her ‘soaring in straight lines’ technique (as later copied by Josef Nobbs in the K-8 for 32 mins).

Thanks go to all those who ‘facilitated’ today, including Peter Howarth, who ‘endured’ two spells on the winch, and Barry Green who winched without flying.
