As well as the scores for October we have one score for September which went astray at the time of preparing the September results. This score would normally have been incorporated as soon as I was notified that the score was missing but, because I was temporarily unavailable, a corrected scoresheet was not published in early October. This score has been added.

The weather in Autumn, at least here in York, has been somewhat bizarre as regards suitability for flying gliders. We has several days where winds were moderate or calm where the sun shone brilliantly but there were no clouds and the sky was a grey/blue colour which made seeing a model at distance almost impossible. I flew my October postal flights under these conditions and in two of the three flights lost the model when climbing into the sun (directly upwind) losing a lot of height in the process. On my last flight I managed to get the model downwind without losing sight of it and thereafter had no problem.

We had only four entries in Open, Anthony just holding off David by four flight points giving 1000 to 998 normalised points. Mike was third with 719 having flown in poor weather at the end of the month.

In 2M, Anthony again won but dropped about a minute on his third flight (1524 flights points giving 1000 normalised points). I was second with 1138 (747) and Martin was third with 1112 (730).


Results are shown below.

We have now completed the first Annual eSoaring Postal Series. Starting in March and finishing in October seems to have worked well. By March access to flying fields was possible and the weather in October was good enough to have National League competitions being flown on what were reserve dates.

In 2M, Anthony won comfortably with 6000. Second was Paul with 5432 just ahead of Jon with 5416.

In Open, as usual the margins between Mike and Anthony were small with Mike just coming out ahead with 5995 to 5991. Third was David with 5705.

Certificates will be sent to the first three in both classes.

Thanks to all who took part and we hope you will participate in the 2019 Series.

Final results are shown below.


Ian & Mike
