It doesn't get much better than Sunday 10th August 2014 now does it?    We had weather that was just going ooooorrrffff, 7knot average climbs and yes even a few 9 knot calls were reported by you know who.   Ol' Nine Knots scared the Distance trophy a little and claimed 2nd place with his 384.21km in GWA while MoB cranked up the Baby Klub Discus, got it out of first gear and lept into 3rd with 358.26km.   Andres, content to beat "Look at me" Laurie's now very old and tired looking distance slid easily into 4th with a respectful 264.65km

But the day goes to Dictator Dan who has grabbed the WWC4 Distance trophy and given it a head butt,  followed up by an open palm slapping and then a knee to the groin.   Dan, once he completed his goal of 400km in the WWC,  "skillfully" took his snout out of the thermal trough and coasted in to land with ample daylight to spare.......and with the all-time WWC Distance record (held by Errol since 2011) remained unchallenged and only half a thermal away at 435.61km.............    

Aaaaaahh but we still have 3 more full weekends to go and the WWCRAP can sense that something very special is brewing for 2014.  Remember it ain't over until that lady who has exceeded MTOW sings her favourite song  ..... so to the Distance and the WWC  points ->
