Coutances 2018 Young Bird & Old Hens Race Report

Race Controller Mr Paul Hill wrote “The Coutances 2018 Young Bird & Old Hens were liberated at 8:00 am in a light Easterly wind, of approximately 5 miles per hour, in gloriously clear & bright Normandy French sunshine. Winds for the 2,546 Young Birds & 866 Old Hens were variable from East to South-East with a strength of 6 to 15 miles per hour, with the latter being in the channel but otherwise they should experience a good clean run home to Blighty.
