Team Easterton returned from the UK Mountain Soaring Championships at Aboyne with several successes under their collective belt.

Ian Tait, flying the Acro with dad Robert along for company, won the week\'s overall competition in style - a remarkable achievement from Ian in his first competition,  just after he had completed his Bronze and before gaining his cross-country endorsement. After this exploit, that should be a mere formality. And he did it in the Acro, which is not - ahem - noted for its high performance. Well done, Ian!

Stuart Naylor, flying the Duo Discus with Billy Fisher and Chris Gill alternating as crew, determinedly took the overall height gain trophy to finish 9th overall.

Phil Penrose in the LS7 finished 4th overall.

A great set of results for the whole team.
