World Class Championship - Day Six Report

Friday, 26 June, started out as a difficult day to assign a task, lots of blue sky and squirrely winds on the ground coupled with the promise of over development.  Once again, the Contest Director was challenged with making fine tune adjustments up to launch time. He finally decided to call for a modified assigned task and proceeded to launch the force. The task called for the mandatory turn point of Estancia East and then out on route with a finish, hopefully, at Moriarty.

All PW-5s launched and as the race progressed the sky to the east became very nasty, but the “force was off heading south and into some pretty blue areas that eventually was the cause of one out. Unfortunately, that one land out caused severe damage to the glider and force it’s withdrawal from the contest.  

Patrick Tuckey (4K) won the day with a 222 mile trek at 54 mph.  Francois Pin  (FP) came it second at 225 miles averaging 46 mph. As this was the fourth day of racing, the Standings are Patrick Tuckey in first place and Bill Snead (6W) in second place.
