Good bye everybody, see you soon
Patrick Puskeiler won the Day....!!
Energy conditions were better than predicted and 151 km. task were completed in 1:07 hr. at 134 km/hr. average speed.
Gostner second place and Rocca third place.
Saturday last day....
No energy no winner.....task seemed pretty in the brief, but pilots couldn´t pass to second system and First waypoint Saladillo and second waypoint Morado Chico were reached by only 3 pilots, the rest of the pilots return home early.
We hope better meteo conditions for friday.
Task for today looked easy and fast at briefing time, but cirrus clouds appear from North west and things turned hard in low levels, causing 2 outlanded (Tilo in Algarrobo airfield and Jarpa in Salamanca airfield ), fortunately Spidertracking allowed to organization sent very fast 2 tugs and both pilots returned soon and safe to Vitacura.
Carlos Rocca kept enought altitude over thermal inversion and won the day....
Diana 2 is back in the podium...Thomas Gostner won Day 4 in a high mountain flying Day. Sobrante - Inka Lake - Olivares Sur - El Teniente - 3K- Vitacura with 437 Km. task, allowed Diana 2 reach 140 Km/hr. average speed.
Day three was by far the most unexpected outcome of the competition until today. A mixture of strategies, flying styles, and low altitude flying. Puskeiler had a bad luck lost of memory, Rocca got stuck in El Blanco, and Tilo won the race after an unexpected move in Los Andes valley.
Well done Tilo!
