VF40 results

Round 40 results are now online! A very high bar was set this round with some great flying top to bottom.

Super close in the placings too, with just 0.4 points between 3rd and 4th, 0.5 separating 7th and 8th, and 1 point between 9th/10th and 11th/12th. Nothing in it!

VF39 results

After a superb round of entries, the results of VF39 are now online. Congratulations to our winner - bravo! The top three scores are very tightly matched, with some even tighter scores in the middle section. Check it out - less than three points between 7th and 11th positions, and barely anything between 5th and 6th. Top to bottom, I can look at each VF39 entry and find something to say "that was good stuff!", and that's what makes our competition fun.

Thanks to everyone who entered and once again, to all of the supporters of VF in the kitng community. Your participation, help, and sponsorship is much appreciated. The VF39 prize draw will follow soon; stay tuned to the Facebook group.

VF39 entries are up!

VF39 entries have closed and we have a wonderful set of 17 videos to feast our eyes on! A superb variety of style and execution, with some new faces, and a few faces from VF rounds gone by. Head on over to the current round page and set aside 30 minutes of quality time to view the YouTube playlist. Which entries were your favourites and why? Let's discuss on the Facebook group.

Entrants, remember to download the VF39 Score Sheet and return it via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Some entries have instances of the kite going out of frame, and at least one begins without both kite wingtips on the ground, but there is nothing calculated or worthy of disqualification. You are free to penalise your scores for rule infringements, as you see fit. I encourage scorers to be lenient towards VF newcomers and sympathetic to fliers who faced challenging conditions. Consider the whole situation in applying penalties, but ultimately it is your decision.

Thanks to everyone who entered VF39 - it's your participation and community spirit that makes our competition great!

VF39 is go!
