US NATS - Task 6
Light winds enabled us to get a 110km (60+ mile) task in that went south then way north and back south to the flight park at Point of the Mountain. I'm staying at HQ, which is right next to the flight park, and it sure is nice to land 100 yards from where I am staying, open a cold beer and fold up on a perfectly mancured lawn.
A few pilots got to 14k, but the group I was with saw more modest climbs to 12k, and not as high for the second half of the task. The race started at 3pm, and one pilot came in just before goal closed at 8pm. Josh and Farmer crossed the finish line at the same time, one will win the day based on leading points.
The forecast is for pre-frontal conditions today, so we may or may not get a task in, which wouldn't be so bad considering we have tasked 6 days in a row now.
