Day 3,

We were called to briefing early (10am) just in case there was big development, and we could get a task in before it really went boom. 564 more words

Flytec Race & Rally - Day 2

Day 2

A 139km task was called again – heading north towards our final destination at Lookout Mountain

I managed to mess up rigging my glider and had to jump out of line to fix it, I just managed it in time to take the last tow and watch the leaders heading off, very frustrating – but this is a brand new glider, and I’ve learnt how to rig it correctly the hard way! 89 more words

Flytec Race & Rally - Day 1

Updates from team Moyes pilot Ollie Chitty

We were called in for a possible early start, briefing at 9am! (Unusual out here to have it so early, not like UK comps) Unfortunately the pilots briefing was set back until 11am due to high cloud shutting the day down, we were eventually rigged ready for a 12 o’clock start, but then the heavens opened and it rained on us! 94 more words
