Regionals Day 2

Yesterday was scrubbed but today the sun shone and a task was set - Silverstone-Didcot-Buckingham. The key to the day was timing, with those setting off early finding it hard going and those who left late having a struggle to get home. The winner was again Stuart Law from Bicester, who is increasing his overall lead. The next two places were also taken by visitors - Ayala Truelove from Lasham was 2nd in a Libelle and Julian Hitchcock from Southdown came 3rd in a DG1000m.

The Javelot made it to a very nice field just south of Bicester and had an aerotow retrieve. George Hunter, flying his first comp after only recently completing his Silver badge, completed the task in the club's ASW19.

All the results, news and some great photos are on Soaring Spot, and there is an excellent gallery of photos here.

Another great day in store tomorrow........
