A very close finish on the last day. Angus Watson dropped a few places on the day and Bill Inglis needed one thermal to finish to win the contest overall. He didn't get it and landed his nice new Antares in a field for the first time at Banbury to come second overall, leaving Angus to lift the Meagher trophy.

Thanks to everyone who helped prepare and run the competition and to all the contestants.  See you next year.

A bit fraught on the grid today. Held the launch start at the 5 minute point for a task query, then again while the weather threw a wobbly. All launched now and starts are being called.

One of the factors in yesterday's success was undoubtedly that we had a Harvard act as sniffer. Mike Cuming was able to report that the air was dead smooth on his climb-out prompting us to delay launching the sniffer until it became soarable. He then went on to give useful weather reports while flying inverted at 5,000 20 miles upwind.

Friday hot and nearly blue, but the tasksetter is finally firing on all cylinders and 16 finishers in difficult conditions. What fun!

Three finishers on Thursday, but a good day despite the carnage.
