At knock off, out of the 10 members that sent I finished 4th, and '88' finished 7th out of the 132 birds that were sent. She recorded a velocity of 1627 with 6th place on 1635 and the club winner on 1679. It worked out I was a mere 2 minutes behind the winner, which after last weeks 20 minutes behind showed a huge 18 minutes improvement.
It turned out there was very little wind this morning during the race, so hopefully with the added help of a south wind next week we will be in the mix again!
My best result in the Gurnos club since restarting last year, and I am predicting now, that the further down the road they go, the better my birds and results will be. I am confident of a good race from next weeks Guildford 131 miles.
I plan to follow the same build up the birds received this week and I will be keeping my fingers crossed they come home next week as well as this!
