Default Racing tasks today at Narromine

Wanted to get back to the race last night.

G-Track tracking was put together by Jacques Graells (MT, LS6). It uses mobile phone based trackers which I believe are owned by GFA. It only displays 2D, but has good report frequency. It can be set up with very low latency, but for all purposes except leeching the 10 minute delay works.

There are at least three previous N-registered gliders in the Australian Multiclass Nationals:
S7 - Allan Barnes, formerly Sam Zimmerman's LS8.
1W - Scott Percival, formerly Sherman Griffith's ASH25.
XZ - Gary Stevenson, formerly George Moffatt's Discus 2.

There are 8 (eight) female competitors:
Kerrie Claffey, Cathy Conway, Jenny Ganderton, Akemi Ichikawa, Claire Scutter, Jenny Thompson, Lisa Trotter, Lisa Turner

When was the last US Nationals with similar female representation?

Racing tasks again today, but longer.
Std/15m is 454km. Open/18m has 550km.
The weather for the last two days of the competition looks good.

Weather weaker than yesterday. No racing tasks today, just three hour AATs. 18m/Open initially had a racing task.
Interesting that the 15m span gliders launched first and have a (slightly) longer task today. Somewhat like Nephi 2016, where Open might have been given Task C by the time the start gate opened.
