18 Meter Nationals - Day 1 Morning Report

The first day of the 18M Nationals dawned with essentially the same weather forecast as the previous 3 days.  Cloudless conditions with 3-6 knot lift and thermal tops from 7-9000 feet. 

The task for the day is a TAT with turns at Anderson, Creston, and Mansfield; with cylinders of 10, 20, and 10 miles respectively.  Distance ranges from ~128 to ~270 miles. 

Sadly, we experienced a fatality yesterday out on course.  Tim Donovan was killed and his glider was destroyed in a single aircraft accident on the first leg.  Our condolences go out to his family and friends.


The task was changed on the grid to a 4 turn TAT with turns at Chelan, Wilbur, Mansfield, and Wilson Creek;  all 10 mile circles.  Still 3 hours.
