Well done to Jez Hood who flew the Shark SJ into ninth place in the 18m Nationals at Tibenham against a strong field of competitors and sailplanes. The first competition day was his first cross-country in the glider and he would have benefited significantly if we had fitted the glider with cloud-flying instruments (especially on the first 2 days).  – Our oversight… Sorry.
