Phil quit flying in 2008 after a long and distinguished career. He has since put in concerted effort supporting hang gliding competitions: Panel member, team manager at European and World level and BHPA representative at CIVL. He is perhaps best known as the ever-present scorer for BOS and the British Nationals, managing GPS downloads and ever ready with words of encouragement. For the last 25 years he has also done sterling work administering the National Hang Gliding XC League. Those at the competitive end of the sport are indebted to Phil’s cheerful devotion to making everything behind the scenes work so well.
