Air Sailing Sports Class Contest - Day One Launch

Wow, what a beautiful sky!  We moved up the launch to 1230 after our sniffers reported very good lift.  First off today was 8AF with female Cadet Smith at the controls of her Discus 2b.  The tow pilots did a great job and the releases were low allowing the launch of 15 sailplanes in 47 minutes.  Okay, one of the sailplanes was a motor glider that self launched!  Pat Sinclair is working the Air Sailing radio, taking start times.  The first start I heard was at 1334 so we should  start having finishes around 1630.

Today's task is a 3 hour TAT with the first turn at Hilton Ranch with a 30 mile radius.  Then it is back north to Flanigan with a 15 mile radius and then a finish at Air Sailing.  Nominal distance on this task is 229.8 miles with a max of 319.9 miles and min of 139.9.
