Top glider pilots from all over the country are set to converge on Pocklington at the weekend for the first Wolds Regionals gliding competition at the Wolds Gliding Club.

The competition starts this Saturday, running to 23 June, and each day a task will be set for pilots to fly and points will be awarded for how fast the gliders complete it.

Although most of the action takes place high in the sky, people will be able to see the gliders being towed up into the air and flying circles inside thermal currents.

See Thursday’s paper (13 June) for the full story.
