Flying has been cancelled on day four of the Husbands Bosworth Challenge Cup, with showers due to pass through the area in the early afternoon and strong wind all day.

There will instead be a trace analysis session in the briefing room, and the BGA’s gliding simulator should be available for flights later. The day will conclude with a gin tasting session in the clubhouse at 7pm.

At this morning’s briefing, winner of the first two tasks Richard Large made a short speech, in which he attributed his success to a lucky penny.
