Booker Juniors at the Nationals

The Junior Nationals is on this week at Bicester and Booker have 3 pilots flying at the competition: Richard Crockett in his mighty Nimbus 2, Oli Llewellyn in a borrowed LS6 and Mike Gatfield in the club Pegase. Saturday was a scrub but Sunday saw a nice day brewing up. A 300km task was set with a fall forward to 360kms, a fallback to 220kms but in the end a rebrief at the front of the grid set a 207km to Bletchley, Oundle and Caxton Gibbet. Richard got round comfortably, Oli landed 6kms short and Minigat landed on the last leg near Woburn. Big thanks to Will Ellis for some really good pre-task planning and coaching of the Booker boys. All round a respectable effort - subject to airspace management...
