Open Class second prize sponsored by SturgessOnline Accounting
Third place in both classes gets a £100 AFE gift voucher

We also had a FR300 personal logger from FlyWithCE/LX Aviation as a floating prize for allocation to someone who does well. It was given to the winner of the unofficial "Most Expensive Points" comp - Steve Codd who managed three aerotows to gain a single point on Day 3.

Forbes Insurance provided the day prizes of lots of bottles of nice wine. Cheers. Oudie navigation Colibri II Flight Recorder

We flew on five days out of nine. Showers on a few days managed to position themselves to cause the maximum disruption, including Day 5 where another 15 Sport Class pilots could have finished but for one particular blob of rain that appeared between the last TP and the finish.

I will try to package up all the logger traces for pilots to download over the next day or two.
See you all next year or at the 18m.
