The British Championsips held at Mere 1976

Bill helping his son Steve to take off. Bill attached strings to the trailing edge forward to the A Frame. When asked why he replied that he could control the Glider like a Class three glider. This enable him to entered the glider in Class three that was usually only for Three axis controlled Gliders. The British learn a valuable lesson from this and later changed the rules for Class three gliders. This was also the first time a Keel Pocket (designed by Steve Cohen) had been seen in the UK, and was copied by most British manufactures as soon as the Championships had been completed.
