Task 2. 92.5 km.

A day with around 15-20km WSW at at take off with Cu and high level clouds comming across to weaken the conditions.  Pilots were getting climbs to 3000m but the switch to more NW conditions in Avila made it impossible to push north around the airpace, so most did zig zags in the Ambles Valley

Winner for the day Urs Dubach with 92.5km

The GBL team (Great British Loosers), justified their name  with a range of splendid bomb outs around Villafranca, only Paul letting them down by getting over the pass and making 48.5km.

Here is some good head cam footage of climbing out at take of by Adrian Leppard (GBL).
