Well the ever changing weather patterns of the British Isles can cause havoc for race controllers. But Tommy McDonagh had the foresight to go ahead with race marking as normal on Friday night. He managed to get an excellent race for the federation on Saturday morning.

The day began with broken cloud and light winds and the word came through that birds had been liberated at 0700hrs from Kelso. Members had to move quickly and get everything in place for their arrivals.

The birds made light work of the sixty-three miles with the fed winner being timed on 1hr 17 minutes for its 63-mile race.  

Again, an excellent race was reported with minimal losses reported.


Again, this week’s federation Open winners are GWP Macaloney.

They are just brilliant at their sport beating the 4,600 convoy and winning 1st,2nd,3rd federation Open again and 1st,2nd,3rd,4th,5th Section. No better! Congratulations to Wullie and Paul.
