Auckland Soaring Championships 2020

Drury, New Zealand,   4 January 2020 – 11 January 2020

Day 2 - It's Westerly so ...

We de-camped to Thames again and came up with a Pilot Selected Turnpoint task. Scoring is haphazard and random, but boiled down to 50 points per TP reached, plus some weird and wonderful vague plans for awarding speed points.

The wind blew hard, and the smoke from the fires in Victoria and NSW made the sky an ominous shade of yellow. At the end of the day, Maurice Honey from Auckland turned up in Thames, in his PW5 after a "high" speed bash down the ridge and proving yet again that SIFOW.

Anyway, scores for day 2 are up. (Thanks to Glyn for assisting the scorer and actualy figuring out how to get numbers out of the madness that is a glider trace)

Remember: Its Enterprise!!! Who needs tasks ???
