Welcome to another gliding contest, with rain, rain, and more rain!
The two practise days have both been rained out, with some exciting storms moving over the field and dumping heaps of precipitation over the flying area. Hopefully the system passes over us quickly, and leaves behind some good weather so we can get flying Wednesday or Thursday.
This has given me plenty of time to sort out my equipment that I’ll need both on the ground and in the air. The pilot’s meeting is happening tonight, followed by pizza and beer for all.
Photos and stories to follow once the contest really gets going.
In the meantime, follow the scores at the World Championships in Finland!
