A close study of the forecast was required to find a slot between storms for the weekend’s event, which was delayed 24 hours until Sunday.

The race was then re-scheduled to the 100 miles from Whitby rather than the planned 160 miles from Whitley Bay.

After a 6am release, the birds faced a strong south, south-west wind and the partnership of Hardy and Burt recorded their second win of the season in the Boston and District Flying Club.

Results: 1 and 3 Hardy and Burt 1136 and 1109 yards per minute, 2 Gough and Reed 1126, 4, 5 and 6 D. Brackenbury 1107, 1101 and 1099, 7 and 8 Mr and Mrs Garnham 1098 and 1097, 9 A. Newton and Son 1091, 10 and 11 Gough and Reed 1088 and 1084, 12 Mr and Mrs Garnham 1079.
