Cracking start to the Spanish Nationals -115km to Segovia

Spanish Nationals First DayThe Spanish Nationals, full to capacity (150 pilots) got underway today with good thermic conditions and a westerly wind.  Similar conditions to the British nationals the past week, and no surprise, we selected the Segovia task.  When I left goal a few hours a go there we 20 pilots at goal, with Simon Issenhuth  the young french pilot first in, and Elisa Houdry the female world champion as the first (an at that time only) woman in goal.

The strongish NW at Avila put many on the ground as they were trying to push northwards to get the airspace control turnpoint.
