Competition - 3rd Apr 2018
Meanwhile most of the gliders landed back to the airfield without completing their tasks. We can expect no valid day in all classes. Some of them are still enjoying ridge flying over Zobor. Anyway finally it is the first really warm day of the competition.
Endless launching procedure is over. Sky is still without any cummulus clouds. We will see if the weather allow pilots to finish their tasks.
After a half an hour we continue the launches. Hoping the weather gets better ;-)
The thermal activity is very weak. Couple of gliders have landed back to the airfield. Others are circling low about the ground. Therefore launching procedure has been paused and we are waiting for the next development.
First start is confirmed to 1 pm!
First start is postponed to 1 pm.
First start is postponed to 12.45 pm.
First start is postponed to 12.30 pm.
Meteo presentations from briefings are available under the WEATHER section on our website.
Our metman Ivan expects weak thermal activity with cloud bases up to 1600m qnh. Therefore quite short Racing tasks have been set for all classes mostly to the east and south of Nitra.
First start is planned at 12 pm.
Short weather update: Currently there is blue sky with some cirrus clouds in the higher layers. We expect south wind for a whole day, temperatures up to 20 degrees, no precipitations. More information after the briefing.
