Task 4. 99.9km

A very slow start yesterday, with soarable winds from around 12am, but few thermals and climbs to only a few 100m above take off.  Many pilots chose to to ridge run, using up some of their 3 turnpoints, to get some distance in before conditons improved.

Best flight of the day was by Klaus Guenter Eberle who flew a distance of 99.9km landing on the souths side of the Gredos near Piedraslaves.  In Second place was Paul Tomassi, with 90km , and who continues to lead the competition.

Three more tasks to go and the forecast is looking good.
