18 Meter/Standard Class Nationals - Contest Day 2 post launch report - Update

Launching was delayed as it didn't heat up as fast as expected. Eventually the snifter reported passing through 6000 on Craggy so launching commenced, pausing occasionally to ensure not too many gliders all in one thermal near the drop zone.

Only one Standard class glider, DZ, relit.

Start line has opened. Diligent crew are listening out but only a few starts are being called. All gliders are on Task A.

Update: A wodge of cirrus crossed the task area which made life difficult for a while. During this time there was one land out and one returner. Cu have brewed up and cloud base is above the top of Mount Shasta so it looks like the others will make it round their tasks.
