Task 5 stopped.

Task 5 stopped at approximately 5:45 PM due to gust front and in general strong wind (30 mph) conditions just a little north of goal at Peak Hill.

Task 5 - 12 Jan - 198.6 km
35 km exit start cylinder centered to the southwest of Forbes airfield. About 10 km from the airfield to the edge of the cylinder. 114 km from the edge of the start cylinder to Cumnock to the northeast (downwind). Then cross wind 21 km to the north northwest to Yeoval. Then upwind 45 km over a small range to Tomingley. Then south 18 km cross wind to the grass airfield just east of Peak Hill next to the golf course. A very tough task if the wind is strong.
