Hi All
Posted some quick comments on the whole Nats on the eSoaring threads. This applies to F5J -

Monday dawned with a breeze which had moved slightly towards the south but still allowed use of much the same flight-line location as before for F5J. We needed to fly 6 rounds to get a discard and we managed to finish around 5pm It looked like this would be a tricky day and it was! Landing was quite bumpy and with several people trying to exploit the downwind trees as lift decayed, there were a few missed landings and the odd zero score. Some very good scores from launches which were averaging about 175m and some very low ones at times (under 3 mins!); only one attempt in F5J! Eventually Steve won, yet again, to take a clean sweep of all the electric powered classes at the Nats. However, the top story was the that the next 2 places were taken by Juniors (one minute you can't find one, the next there are 2 standing in front of you!!). Simon Haley and Josh Lloyd came an excellent 2nd and 3rd with very consistent flying. Simon is and old hand but Josh has done relatively little F5J flying in Scotland and is hopefully a force for the not too distant future.

A very good weekend Buckminster. Steve taking all 3 comp wins; good weather; good location with opportunity for evening flying attracting several participants (Barkston not being too far away (about 30 mins) for evening visits, either); chance for people to meet. The buildings could have been very useful in bad weather but this time remained mainly quiet! Thanks to all who participated, or helped in any way.

Mike
