18Meter part III

Third valid contest day -3Hour area task maximum distance around 280km some of the pilots were calculating where to go to have maximum distance as they planned to fly fast. We had a little Cu's but rest of the contest area was blue. Task was survival flight and the winner's speed was just above glider stall speed . On average we had 2kts thermals and couple times around 3. I finished second for the day and recovered some of the lost points.

50% of pilots landed out, some of them just short of finish cylinder.

Saturday - day was cancelled due to rain in the morning and strong winds, blue sky with some Cu's are 30km west of the airfield with low cloud base . Sunday should be good soaring day.
