Liberation Report Nort-sur-ErdreĀ  2020

2020 Season
 
The RPRA have been notified from the FCI that Nort-sur-Erdre has been closed for four days, which disallows the NFC from liberating this weekend from that point. The NFC have moved to Messac.

 

Sat - 18/07/20 - 08.48 hrs. The birds at Messac have been liberated at 08.45 hrs in clear sky and cleared immediately.  Variable light winds up through the Cherbourg peninsula. Light west winds in the channel of 9 to 12mph. Once in the UK we have a south west wind which should push the birds through some showers and more persistent rain which will slowly break up as the day goes by. Good luck all.  Race Advisor Steve White & Dom McCoy Chief Convoyer.  See the video of the liberation: - 

 

 

Sat - 18/07/20 - 08.09 hrs.  Skies starting to clear nicely.
