This means that yesterday was cancelled. Today nice tasks of 320 km for open class, 299 for combi class and club class has to fly 259 km.
But….it still is not TOO good weather. It started great but , overdevellopment straight arrived after the sunny conditions. And what can you do? Maybe change to task B.

Every day the pilots find on their table some nice little presents donated by sponsors., as water bottles and earphones!

Pilots are still on the strip. At 14.15 the box was opened for the B task and as estimated first launch is set; 14.30. We live in hope. The wind is a bit blowing and moves the clouds quickly, nice bleu “holes ” disappear for that reason. We only need half -a-grade to start!!!
