Big thanks to Dave Masson for the task. Underset by 2 hours I think!
First 750 out of Wales and furthest a DG1000 has been in the UK! Finished high so I could glide home without the engine (25km or so) and the last leg was a bit of a slog! Great day out
Talking to Oxford who were good, could hardly get a word in, their radio was so busy

A tremendous achievement Chris: Well done indeed, to achieve (I believe ) the very first 750 starting and finishing in Wales. Can anyone put us right if this is not so ?
Now for the prize money on offer ( 750) for the first starting and finishing at Lleweni ? Or maybe we should offer that to a visitor ??

Ta. Well done.
I did actually do a 757km in a DG1000 in 2007. I'll have to do a bigger one now...
