2007 N. England Open

Hole of Horcum 15 July 2007

This event was part of the F3F Eurotour series and saw an international entry of 42 pilots.

Very well organised by Jon Edison and his able band of helpers. All the right calls were made and despite the lack of any competitive flying on the second day we got enough rounds to produce a fair result. We even avoided getting significantly wet.

The highlights for me were the relentlessly fast and accurate Calderas. The Freestylers were impressive, but looked as if they would be better suited to lighter winds than we had on the first day. The only major dissapointment was Greg Dakin's terminal prang with his Race Machine, which put paid to what could have been an entertaining challenge for a top place.

Thanks to Jon and the NYSA for putting on an excellent competition. Here's a selection of the best photos - enjoy! - Mike
