2009 BMFA League 3
26th April 2009
What makes a great comp? How about constant sunshine, a great slope, consistent conditions, a healthy but not unmanageable entry, and slick organisation?
Well, we had em all for League 3! Six rounds on the Wrecker in glorious sunshine and a force 2-3 breeze, with just enough thermal activity to make things just a little interesting without turning it into a lottery... And when the points were totted up, it was Paul Garnett who took a well-deserved top spot from Kevin Newton. Simon Thornton came third.
Times were mostly in the 40's and 50's, with Greg Dakin achieving FTD of 38.2 secs.
Many thanks to the SWSA, in particular to Andrzej, Mike and Kevin for organising a very slick competition. Full results here

With apologies to anyone I've missed out.
A trip to Wales isn't complete without a few photographic diversions. In addition to nearby Porthcawl, I also visited Merthyr Mawr, the site of the largest dune system in Europe. From the car park on the edge of the dunes, it takes about 1/2 hour to walk to the sea. Shortly before sunset on Sunday, I visited Kenfig where there's another dune system and a small lake.
