Looks like Steve Haley was in with a strong chance - until the last fly off round.
I guess there must be something of a gamble on getting away from low launch heights.

Congratulations to Bertrand Wilmot, winner for the second year in a row.

Yes, after two rounds i was neck & neck with Julian Benz (Young German Pilot). After round 2, I took the decision that I needed to launch lower than him to win. As it happened, we both launched around 80m a long way from launch following a feed which neither of us found!!!

I scraped back to the field and Julian landed out. Simon had a good first round and went for the win in round 2 and followed his own feed which was the opposite end of the field to where the pack flew. He did find his feed but the air dissipated offer the tree line and he landed early which was not helped by having no rudder control due to a broken servo mount.

Really great thermal soaring competition weekend with good organisation, exceptional weather and high standard of flying.

cheers Steve
