Half way through Task 8



They have made the first turnpoint and Jonny and the Italian are doing well.  Jamie is also doing well just before the first turnpoint.  I assume that it was essentially a race start at 2:15 PM as the interval is a half hour (to reduce the primping).

I think that the fastest pilots will average 45 km/h and make goal (if the winds stay light) at about 6:15 PM.  Goal is at the airfield.  It is a line finish today.  They've done 70 km in an hour and a half with a downwind leg and half of a cross wind leg.

If the last leg is hard with a wind (showing a 11 km/h WSW wind at the moment) then they won't make it back in time as the lift decreases after 5 PM.
