Cross Country Task Week 2017

Task week was held between the 26th August and 3rd September.

For the first time for many years we had 6 contest days. We flew 5000Km and achieved 100 hours on task with 16 gliders participating. Very good news is that KRI, one of the Club's K21's, won leauue 1 with some epic flights and possibly some of the longest cross country flights that the K21s at Kent have ever done. Well done to Chris Grebby and his P2s.

In League 2 the winner was Martin Hardy  with Kenny McPhee a close second. Perhaps a move up to League 1 for them next year!

17 members of the club, together with 11 aircraft, put in an appearance at the weeks expedition to Shenington in the Cotswolds held on the 2nd week of August.

As ever, our hosts at Shenington were relaxed and welcoming which contributed to an enjoyable week. The soaring weather could have been better but members took to the air on every day. Retrieve crews were active as flights were attempted despite conditions not favouring cross-country tasks.
