Hi Guys


Here are the summarised results from Sunday HTL 3.

Conditions were very challenging with crosswind launches and strong wind most of the day.
Morning mist delayed the start but we still managed to fly 6 rounds by 14h30.

Not a single pilot managed to max all 6 rounds, which is an indication to how varied the conditions were. Congrats to Craig on the win and nice to see Dion at the top of the leader board.

Tshepo is making good progress with a 7th placing and no damaged equipment.

Next event is scheduled for 6th June and May is postals month.
Regards
Herman
