Tracklogs in Google earth

It’s nice to be able to analyze the tracklogs from the Bogong Cup soon after each day is scored. I was looking at the best flights, and found Jon’s choice on day 4 to be interesting…
Day 4, Google Earth
Jon’s track is the green on the left, he chose to go all alone, way off course to the first TP. I emailed him and asked if it paid off, and he wrote it did not really work. He wanted to be smarter than everyone else, and took the chance to go by himself. He got low, and met headwind going to the TP anyway.

Kevin Carter writes about flying with Steve Moyes in his blog, Steve is the Ninja Master, Kevin is the Grasshopper, and no one can beat the Ninja Master :-) Flying with Steve is a humbling experience, he is super smooth and efficient in every move.
