Competition - 15th Apr 2009
We would like to apologise for a weak news today, but we had problems with internet connection here at the airport.
At this moment some 115 gliders are back home. The tasks seems to be well set today, because the speeds are extreme. The task time is slightly under 3 hours so we will miss 1000 pioints in some classes. The arrivals were exeptional and thanks to all pilots all went very well so far. All that despite a huge groups of gliders arriving together. It has been so busy on frequency that even call sign reply wouold cause a trouble. Now the flights are evaluated and early preliminary results are already on soaringspot.com.
