Fells and Gifford win Salcombe Merlin Week

Tim Fells and Frances Gifford won their final flight and after a wait . . . celebrated winning the 2017 Sharps Doom Bar Salcombe Merlin Week.

Fells and Gifford started their final flight race in second place overall, and with that safely won had to wait to see the result of the other flight race, where overall series leaders Andy Davis and Alex Warren were competing.

Davis and Warren needed a second or a win to clinch the title, but they faced a tough group and it was Mike and Jane Calvert who took the win, with Simon Blake and Pippa Taylor in second, Chris Gould and Chris Kilsby third and then Davis and Warren in fourth.

So the final leaderboard was: 1st Fells and Gifford 10 pts, 2nd Davis and Warren 11 pts and 3rd Blake and Taylor 12 pts.
