SRFC Glider Competitions 2021

The following is a provisional plan for 2021 based on the bold assumption that we will be able to hold competitions in 2021.

The basic rules are:

  • Two rounds are flown each week
  • 20 second power
  • 10 minute flight time at the end of which the competitors’ gliders should have landed as close to their marks as possible.
  • One point for each second flown to a maximum of 600
  • Points awarded for landing as close to the mark as possible with a maximum of 50
  • The score total is the combination of the flight time and the landing points less penalty points
  • Penalties are applied for flight longer than 10 minutes, landing off the strip and using power after the first 20 seconds (flight is null and void).
