18-Meter Nationals - June 23 Report

Hi race fans,

I will be posting contest meetings and reports on YouTube. In the name of the movie the first number is the date, the second number is the military time, if there are more than one movie for that hour p1, p2, etc. will be added to the end. If you have any questions or problems, please get in touch.

Pilots meeting

The conditions look similar to the last two contest days. The task is a MAT with 16 Hook, 13 Green, 24 Moraine and 18 Lebanon. Some of the pilots don't think we are going to be able to launch because the lift ceiling won't get high enough. We'll see. If they do, anything could happen to the standings. When the ceiiling is low and there is weak lift things aren't as predictable.

Just before the last gliders launched the task was scrubbed. Definitely looked like there would be a 99% chance that no one could make the 60 mi minimum distance let alone that 25% of the field would start.

End of day, Elliott Martin taking his 4th lesson
