The first round of the Wessex Round Robin Low-Cost 600RES electric thermal gliding competition took place on the 21st May at Cashmoor with kind permission of the Wimborne MAC. There was a good entry, good flying conditions and some close competition. Height limiters were used today, set at 200m and 30 seconds. There was a good entry of ten competitors all of whom had arrived with great enthusiasm for the new season. The event consisted of five rounds, resulting in a total of nineteen slots. Not counting any fly-offs at the end of the day for pilots with equal scores, each pilot flies five times in this Round Robin competition. The slots are so designed that each pilot will fly once against every other pilot in the competition.
