Multi Class day 2 & 3

Wednesday 6th January 2010
Results from Day 2
Open Class – Cancelled

18 meter class – Cancelled

Standard Class – Cancelled

15 meter class – Terry Cubley Adelaide SC AAT distance 318Km in a time of 3hrs:05 average speed 102.7km/h

Task Day 2.

Designated Start – Bakara – Peebinga – Overland Corner – Waikerie Finish – Task length: 166.7km/437.0km (295.3km)

The other three classes were cancelled on the grid as the temperature had not broken through early enough for us to launch. We are obligated to give all the classes a fair period of lift for the estimated time to complete the task. In the end the day did go a little longer than expected however the sea breeze effect did come through on track later in the day. A difficult day for the operations committee.

Ok so it’s day 3 for the comp and third day 15 Meter having flow yesterday but for the majority of the fleet it is still only their second day to fly. I checked the speeds exactly the same for Standard and 15 Meter; amazing. The organisations seems to be running well, we launched the entire grid in 1hr:05
