2024 BMFA F3F League reserve 1

9 June 2024

Third placer Graeme Mahoney

BMFA F3F: Reserve 1

Conditions were only so-so, with a light WNW wind, and significant variation in the lift. Nevertheless we managed to complete a full 13 rounds and we had a lot of fun.

Noteworthy also was the soft undergrowth awash with buttercups, which made for risk free landings as well as forming a beautiful backdrop for the camera!

The winner was Mark Redsell flying his FS6 with consistency and precision. Close behind was Dave Rumble, with local pilot Graeme Mahoney taking the final podium position.

Many thanks to the organisers and the Whitesheet club for a really fun day out.
