Competition - 13th Apr 2012
A Suprisingly Good Day!
After a rest day everybody was excited to hear a good news from the meteorologist with the promise of a flyable day. When we saw the first sun shines and the blue sky we believed that there is a pretty good chance to fly. Despite that high clouds and even rainshowers were expected later in the afternoon. Therefore assigned area tasks were set up.
Launching started at 12:00. Cumulus clouds started to form and soon high clouds dissolved. The temperature raised up to 18 degrees. Nobody believed that the weather would turned out to be that good. Around 1pm the sky looked like in Australia and we knew that the weather was underestimated and tasks should have been longer.
First final was announced shortly before half past three. Landing have started. All gliders were safely home before five pm. It was definitely the best flying day of the competition. Cloud base over 2000 meters, thermals 4 mps. I hope everyone enjoyed the day and now it is time for beer ;)
