Saturday-2 News 30/07/2011 Day 7 Open, Day 6 Sport
This will be the penultimate day of the comp.
10:15am It started blue but we have cumulus now. Tasks have been set.
Open Class - BC3 - SAC - DID - KGS - WLY - THP - BC1 = 384.2km
Sport Class Task A BC3 - SAC - DID - RUS - BC1 = 293.7km
As on previous days we have a few extra tps to keep pilots out of airspace.
10:55 Open Class launch in 15 mins on Task A, then Sports after a short delay
11:44 KDV is first to start, then 5min later EHT, 676, 196
11:51 DW, M2, 933, 333 then at 11:58 490 then at 12:00 S27, RV, KPO

12:46 EAR again. then 911, and 224 13:00 W4 again, and I think that's everyone made at least one start now.
13:04 Ooops missed 768
13:55 HPM's crew get their call.
14:45 With the both Open class and Sport class over 2 hours into their tasks, and y = 120km and 117km respectively, it's fair to say this should be a 1000pt day in both classes.
15:34 676 is landing back, not finishing
15:44 W20 is 10km out - Sport class first finisher! That's 89kph
And about 15:55 It's 264 and 574.
16:11 MS, with DNE, then EDW landing back, followed by 768 a few few mins later
16:19 HGG non comp is next, then at 16:21 AC and JKX at 16:23
16:25 ST, 615, 224 - now the gaggles coming home
16:27 290, first of the big boys! then FDW, next it's 547, DW, 379, EAR, 933, KDV, 333
16:38 LL (M2 is confused about his identify) and at 16:41 J15 KPE.
16:46 KRF is 10km out, as is S27 and ETY, 16:53 K5 calls in with LS8
17:00 666, then EHT and D54, then C29, and at 17:05 Ollie in 196 and X8, and 490, but W4 has landed out at SAC
17:13 RV calls 10km, followed by 2ZC, 710, D4 and KDV. W4 may not have landed yet, he claims.
18:19 W4, who thought he was landing out, has finished. Wish these pilots would make up their minds ;)
19:15 Initial batch of scores now on line and will be updated regularly. Wind is now in place.
20 out of 22 completed the Open Class's 384km task
