On July 27th last year Carl set out to break the UK defined hang glider triangle record after a long wait for the right weather, launching by aerotow from Defford after declaring a 142km route. The day was slow to develop, and at his second turnpoint it appeared to be spent. Remarkable flying and brave decisions over difficult terrain saw him complete the triangle with no height to spare. Carl is an active tug pilot at Defford and supports and coaches pilots at all levels. He now holds every single British Class 1 straight distance and triangle record.
