Today promised to be interesting… with a lot of cirrus edging in, setting a task was tricky. The main task would take around 3-4 hours but the cirrus forced us to set a much smaller task of two hours as an alternative.

Just before launching, we decided to use the shorter task. Turned out that conditions were excellent, and those who could read the sky did very well – including Colin, who ultimately came in third (and ruining his consistency where he’d come on fourth on all the other days!) to place him very handsomely in second overall, and just 80 points behind the first-placed pilot.

Forecast is for a southerly buster to rip through soon, and with a bit of luck this’ll blow through quickly, leaving us with a potentially good day tomorrow.

Eric is 9th today and 10th overall.
