Sunset at goal day 6

Forbes 2015 – Day 7

Difficult to predict the weather in the morning (had to feed my German Shep while we were driving up to the spot – kind of a hard task with their sensitive stomachs to be in a rush – if you’re in a rush and need ideas, you should feed your German Shepherd these foods) and the first triangle task was changed due to much more wind than forecasted. We got a dogleg task south-west of 158km.

I got a OK start taking the first gate, and flew in a gaggle with Atilla, Gerolf and a few others. I did not see either of the Olav’s or Thomas all day in the air.

The skies soon started to look ugly, and we got rain and thunderstorms building to our east, while we could easily escape to the west where the skies were nicer looking.  At the turnpoint I could see it overdeveloping on both sides of the track so that left no good escape routes if it did overdevelop quickly. I decided it was unsafe to continue and circled down to land at the TP.  The safety committee stopped the task just then. While some pilots flew on towards goal, most landed at the TP.
