Vicki Cain from Moyes, Australia, reports on the 2010 Forbes Flatlands hang gliding competition:

It’s a wrap….The Forbes Flatlands 2010 was a huge success with 9 consecutive days of flying. The last day was cancelled after a vote came in at 20/20, 20 to fly, 20 to cancel. The deciding factor being made after a consultation with the safety committee.

Zac Majors from the USA flying Wills Wing led the competition for the first 6 days before he fell down on the 7th. Jonny Durand of Australia flying Moyes picked up the lead and finished the comp with a comprehensive lead of 467 points.

Andy Phillips from Victoria flying a Moyes Malibu took out the Sport Class and an up and coming pilot from Canungra Ant Coleman flying a Moyes Litespeed S 4  won the A Class.

The Brauniger voucher kindly donated by Braungier and the Encouragement award presented by the Forbes Shire Council was won by a 17 year old pilot from New Zealand. Jonas Lobitz placed a very credible 21st  overall in a World class field.
