Dragon 2021 Postponed to Fallback weekend (12-13 June)
I'm afraid that with May's wet and windy weather set to continue into the weekend, this year's race will be postponed until the fall-back dates of 12-13 June, with the briefing to be held on Zoom on the evening of the Friday 11th June.
I'm sure you're all raring to go and I'm sorry if this news has upset your training schedule. For those who wanted a little more training time, then you're in luck!
In the mean-time, please make sure that you're all set up with LiveTrack24 (LT24) accounts, and tracking devices/apps set up so that on the morning of the 12th it works, and please make sure you have registered at the LT24 event page in the pilot list: https://www.livetrack24.com/events/DragonHikeandFly2021/pilots/en
The good news is that as of today, 50 people can get together outdoors in Wales. It's almost as if the rule change was put in place for you all to climb out together from TP1 and then get 36 hours later, get together for the after party!
I look forward to seeing you in June.
