South-East wind in the channel and Southerly wind in the UK ensured
that practically all the top positions were taken on the western side
of the country.
However I am delighted to report that my birds performed out of their
skin taking 1st, 3rd and 13th section(I) and 51st open out of 8000+
My 1st bird led the section by an incredible 60ypm and was one of only
two birds to break the dominance of sections K & L in the first 50

Brief Profile of Gary Daykin from Nottingham, UK
The national winning loft of Gary Daykin is considered one of the top
racing lofts in the UK. In the nineties Gary’s dominance at club and
federation level was breath-taking…
In 1995, 1996
and 1997 alone Gary won 105 x 1st prizes, 92 x 2nd prizes, 2 x gold
medals and 2 x silver medals. He also, on no less than 16 occasions,
took the first 3 positions in the federation and on occasions the first
9 positions, competing against 3000+ birds.
Gary’s dominance was so phenomenal that he decided to cease club and
federation competition and concentrate solely on national flying. In
1998 in his very first ever national race Gary took 1st and 2nd open against 5600 birds.
Since then he has won 9 nationals plus many more minor positions, 5 gold medals, 9 silver medals and 2 new cars. It is safe to say that his record marks him out as a true champion.
