The lib site from last year is no longer a lib site..

I understand they have 2/3 other possible sites within a few mile radius that have to be checked out

L.McKay, Carnoustie flying 527mls in 2001. Not sure if it was the Gold Cup though. But it was the only French race due to Foot & Mouth.

Burdinne looks very good choice with open countryside for birds to fly into ,if they can hold a line of flight their only main obstacle will be Brussels all obviously dependant on wind direction
If they could hit the coast between Bruges and the Antwerp estuary allowing them to hit land in ipswich area
A dutch fancier told me if wind puts them further north they then encounter the four main waterways from antwerp to Rotterdam giving them a much greater sea crossing
Here's hoping for another summer like 76 - 2018 and an east wind lol
Getting excited already :emoticon-0157-sun:
