All gliders are in the air now and it took us only 46 minutes to to this job. "Vivat" for tow pilots and grid crew. World and 20m Multi Seat class have their start lines already.open. The Standard and Club class will be able to go on their way very soon.
The first take offs will be at 12:30. There are few Cu clouds in the sky above us with slight indication of possible wave in the higher altitudes. Everithing is ready for the last practise race.
We are now after the both briefings. There was an update to Finish Ring procedure in the agenda for Team Captains and a number of other issues for pilots at their briefing. After the official invitation of Jury president Mr Fred Gai (GER), Cheif Steward Mr. Jaroslav Vach (CZE) and Steward Mr. Jiri Cihlar (CZE) we could hear the information related to procedures, scoring, today's openning ceremony and subsequent gliding airshow. Finaly we got weather and task related information as well. Now we know the weather should be fine for a short a tasks we set even with a possibility of the mountain wave above altitudes of 2 000 m therefore we believe all the pilots and the team members will be ready and present at the ceremony in the evenning.
