In 2011 Rebekah, a hang glider pilot and Met Office forecaster, was invited to the British Open to provide weather reports for the competition. Her forecasting skills, specifically targeted at the needs of hang gliding competitions, turned out to be unsurpassed. Her advice, to both organisers and pilots, is articulate, comprehensive and highly respected. No longer active as a pilot, Rebekah’s continued commitment attests to her character. Her ability to engage the complex mind of the competitive pilot is remarkable, and her assistance over the last eight years has contributed greatly to the BOS series and UK Nationals’ success.
