Lots of excitement at briefing as it looked like it was going to be a good day, and indeed it was. The sky looked cracking, if a bit blowy, and to quote a number of pilots... "Bloody cold"
Goal was set at a golf club near Porthcrawl  with a turnpoint  27km into the 78km task
Ten Flexwing gliders made goal, including Richard Hunt, Ollie Moffatt, Donnie Carson and Dave Tregaskis.
Grant Crossingham won the day followed by Steven Penfold and Justin Needham

The British Open Series Hang Gliding Competitions is trying a slightly different format for one part of the series.(in effect replacing Round 3). 
The Third comp in the series will be split over 4 weekends hoping to take advantage of the weather and traveling to whichever part of the country offers the best chance of flying on Saturday and Sunday.
Club class tasks will be set and a retrieve vehicle may be available on a cost sharing basis.
Dates for this competition are
