TASK 6

No network at goal yesterday, so we didn't get to tweet the goal finishes.  But the most exciting thing was seeing young Julia first across the goal line!  Looks like maybe she's getting her Mojo back?!!  She didn't win the day because she took a fairly early start, but she had a fantastic finish anyway.  Along with here, there were a bunch of other girls at goal - Tish (on a kingpost), Tove, Christa, Corinna, Francoise and Zhenya coming it at 7:30!  Go girls!!

DUNEDOO GOAL - TASK 5


TASK 5

Despite a not very promising looking sky, the task committee called a long 221 km dogleg, downwind task to Dunedoon. We went on chase with little hope of anyone making it, convinced Atilla had overcalled the day. That doubt was quickly replaced with surprise when we started to hear talk on the radio of decent climbs, reasonably high cloudbase and, of course, fast moving gaggles in the 20mph wind - very unexpected given the thin layer of high clouds shading things a bit. But, with the lead gaggle of 30 or so rounding the turnpoint quite quickly, we started taking twitterbets on how many would get in. There were 28 very pleased pilots in late in into the afternoon. Once again, that task committee was right on!

TODAY'S TASK - COFFEE


Typically gorgeous Forbes sky, but far too much wind.  50-60km breezes, so the day was canned.  The forecast says great conditions for the last three days, so everyone seems pleased with a rest after yesterday's long task.

Here's the whole gang!
