Closing Ceremony

So the competition has now closed and crews and pilots are on their way home; safe travels.

Who said that the UK was not a good place for soaring?  We had 10 soaring days in the 18m and Open classes and 7 soaring days in the 15m class and that is much better than several International competitions of late.  The total task distance set was 7568 km and the total number of kilometers flown is a staggering equivalent to 3.5 times around the equator!

Well done team GB with a Silver Medal in the Team Cup and medals in all classes.
