Final task of the 2018 BPCup and we are on Eyam Edge, with it's deserved reputation as a tricksy site! A downwind task of 29k to goal just before the airspace, not a long task but tricky as conditions were set to deteriorate on launch with the wind forecast to really pick up.
My 3rd attempt, after two fortunate top landings, several went down, saw me climbing away in a mixed gaggle of BPCup and local pilots. Up and away to cloudbase we went, away over Stanage and on NW of Sheffield. Climbs were mixed, some lovely and nice to work, others horrible with nasty sharp edges. I was working a really horrible, knarly thing, looked down and realised I didn't need to as my Oudie was telling me goal was within reach, hooray.
I heard others on the radio say they were going to carry on and the sky ahead certainly looked good enough, but it was our last day with prize giving to organise and I needed to get back so my trip to Scarborough will have to wait for another day.
I had a great day out and a super easy retrieve with 3 other BPCup guys and the XCL's very own Mr J Stevenson - what's not to like?
