The 1-26 Championships - Day Six Report

Saturday, 27 June, began much like Friday, except we knew the day was going to get rough later in the afternoon. The Contest Director decided the day would be short with an emphasis on speed.  The day started with a “practice” pancake breakfast put on by the members of the Albuquerque Soaring Club. We called it “practice” because in the excitement of racing the word did not get passed around, even though it was briefed at the start of the contest, and very few contestants showed up for the feast.  The PW-5s launched first followed by the 1-26s.  Almost immediately, the race field began landing back as the sky just wouldn’t support them. After thirteen of the fifteen racers landed it was decided to call the day and release the folks for a little sight seeing.
