XG Day 6
by Dave Springford •
Start gate was open 13:56.
Weather didn't cooperate at first part of the task area .
After one hour in to flight we knew that those who will be able to fly
fast have chance to finish. For others it will be very hard with high
risk of land out just short of finish.
Last 160km was just fight to survive on last weak thermals in addition
thunderstorms North of Uvalde cut thermals.
We have large spread of speeds today, but it looks that all pilots from
our class finished and some of them finished well after 8PM
