Task 6. 138.6km Martin Muller, and 92.9 for Oli Pipe on DHV1.2

Fantanstic conditions with convergence along the high peaks.  Some amazing flights, with various routes taken.  Ari (Fin) went to the Gredos peaks and flew to Pedro Bernardo before returnin g the Barco Valley.

The day Winner, Martin Muller flew to near Avila then back to the Tornavacas pass.

Our long time client Oli Pipe nearly broke his previous personal best (of 95km with a 5 hour flight of 92.9 flying to Villafranca, then most of the way down the Cherry tree valley, then flying back towards the Tornavacas pass.  Epic stuff on his Gradient Golden.
