North of England Open F3F

30 June - 2 July 2017

Winner Dieter Perlick

This year's North of England Open served as a Eurotour and World Cup event and attracted 29 pilots including teams from Germany and Holland.

Day One

Fog and drizzle greeted us on the first day, at the Saltersgate slope. This resulted in a number of stoppages. Nevertheless, we managed to get in two rounds in before the end of the day.

Days Two and Three

This was followed by two days of sunshine and splendid competition at Levisham, with several sub 40s.

16 rounds were flown in total, permitting the use of two discards. Dieter Perlick's metronomic flying saw him take first place flying his Caldera, with Rich Bago a fine runner up flying his Freestyler 4, and Greg Dakin third.

Many thanks to Jon Edison for organising and CD'ing, Rich Bago for CD'ing and for his support through T9 HobbySport, and all who helped.
