Competition - 16th Apr 2017
All gliders are accounted for. Enjoy the rest of the day and see you tomorrow ;)
We are waiting for the last 13 gliders. According to our information most of competitors were able to finish tasks today. We will see soon on soaringspot how they did.
The runway is full of gliders and still o lot of them are on their final glides from south-east. You can watch them on live.glidernet.org.
Many gliders from 20m and Club class on final glide.
First 20m class gliders home! Others on 10k.
Two pilots from open class have reported outlandings. After a rainshower period there is again the sun shining and active cumulus clouds above our area.
Start lines have been opened at:
Open class: 12:38
20m class: 12:57
Club class: 13:16
15m class: 13:20
We have finished the launching procedure of 136 gliders in 70 minutes. Meanwhile couple of local rainshowers passed our area. It was a complication for a few pilots. Three of them are waiting for second start right now.
We are getting ready to compete. First launch is confirmed to 12.00 !
It is after the briefing. First start is planned for 12 pm. There are already a lot of cumulus clouds above us with base about 1000m qnh. We expect cloud base to reach approx. 1600-1800m in our area and about 2000m in the north and east of Nitra. Thermal development will be very fast, quite strong thermals expected but strong N-W wind could complicate the situation. See more in section Weather with all ours forecast presentations.
After a cold front passed our area from the west during the night we woke up into a morning with sky covered by high level clouds. The cirrus clouds are continually moving towards the east and disappearing as well. Quite strong and cold north-west wind is blowing. But the most important - the sun just started to shine here which make us more optimistic. More about the weather after the briefing as usually at 10 am in the hangar.
