Forbes 2020, day 5, task 2

We flew a 145km task, crosswind to the south, turning north crosswind to just east of Forbes, and headwind to goal at Bogan gate. Conditions were good, with 3000m cloudbase and some strong lifts here and there.

I was back in the towing order since I did not place well in task 1, and I took the first startgate 5-6 minutes late. I cought up with the main gaggle around the first turnpoint and had an OK run from there to goal. The final glide was into headwind and I nearly misjudged it, starting at 1:7 25km out I just made it over the trees into the goal cylinder to 6. place. Atilla won the day, Olav in 4. place.

Smoke from bushfires spread out into our flying area.
