Leckhampton 19th March

Howard flew earlier in the day.
Windy most of the afternoon, but calmed down enough for me to be first off to launch at 4pm. It was great, able to fly well out, but by then no really useable thermals. I got blown away by the 2 Czech pilots who flew very well, one on a dhv 2-3 Venus, who went over the edge of town a number of times and literally flew rings around me and climbed straight past me (more like a hangglider than paraglider).

2 models had a mid air, one of which was damaged and became uncontrollable. Good job no-one else was in the air at the time.
