Yesterday we raced from Morlincourt around 280 km to Nieuwendijk.
First time for a south west wind all season however although the squad performed well as a team with 21 prizes from 28 entries and 10 in the top 73 against 1266 birds, we were dissapointed that we did not have a top ten finish.
Club 228 birds…6th,7th,11th,12th,16th etc
Union de Baronie 1266 birds…13th,15th,26th,27th,34th etc
