Thanks CJ - based on the chatter, I thought yesterday would have been Task 12 and the last day of the contest.

NSW, Australia is 16 hours ahead of USA EST.
If I calculate correctly, it's now 3AM on last day...

For a look at the weather, look at https://keepitsoaring.com/informatio...eepit-weather/ and scroll to the bottom for the meteogram.

This has turned into a CLASSIC off the rails RAS thread, good job boys!

I feel Aude Untersee's pain of getting a zero on day one.

Some will remember in Nephi a few years back after a navigation error I got a first day score of negative 100. Fly all day and wind up below zero.
That will deflate your balloon.
Had a couple beers after that brilliant maneuver.

Good Luck to the US Team ! I hope they have a fine finish!


The French women in Standard Class are really good, are disciplined and excellent at team flying which gives a nice advantage. It is obvious though, that when compared one on one, Sarah is easily equal or superior to anyone flying the contest.

On the 15th (16th) a Czech pilot ahead of the pack turned #1 then

We watched the Czech 6 maneuver on OGN. Still don't know exactly what happened.
Likely a dyslexic number of the entered waypoint.
Meanwhile, it's 8:40am and we haven't left the Gliders Lodge at Sport and Rec.
Briefing 930, grid 10, launch 1130....
Film at 11,
