Steve Watts just gets better and better

Steve Watts just gets better and better

Steve is currently lying 7th In the XC League, with all gliders above him being sophisticated 2 liners. Long may his super position continue at least, if not improve.

He is good - as an example I flew with him on Monday in non XC conditions - we have identical model same sized wings, the same harness, the same all up weight, but on upwind transitions, he consistently got further forward and at a higher altitude than I - it's that subtle delivery of optimising the performance that makes the difference that can allow a pilot to get the next climb and increase the chance of staying up.
