Day Six

by | Aug 19, 2022 | News | 0 comments

Due to the slow departure of the front today’s task was set East to West. The pilots had decent conditions for the start, in the 18m and Standard classes most pilots went deep into the first sector and struggled in the second with a very strong Westerly breeze making it a long trek across. In the Club class the winning pilots opted for a shallower first sector as for them it was looking blue to the East and then they pushed it in the second right to the back. Winning pilots seemed to be operating in a narrow height band – staying high and climbing more often paid off. Although the competitors found the day extremely tough, every class still had a 1000 point day and only a handful of gliders landed out. Tomorrow’s forecast has the chance to be even better depending on the progress of an overnight front. The Gliding Centre is hosting a family fun free weekend with glider simulator, STEM activities, shopping and food stalls, music and much more! Hopefully there’ll be plenty of racing for the public to follow while they are here.
