Posted by tracy On June 13th, 2022

The weather forecast for the Derbyshire event held the prospect of some record breaking casts given the strong breeze predicted, however it was apparent that this was not going to be an easy day for the competitors when the direction switched three times in the time it took to set out the accuracy rings. As the day proceeded the wind turned out to be very problematic with all events affected by a combination of headwinds, shearing winds and flat calms. The competition started off with the accuracy event and then, after much head scratching when discussing the best casting direction, the tapes were set out for the T38, S55 and T120. After the lunch break the #5, #7 and ST27 were cast in the afternoon. The following results are in feet and inches:
