Soca Open - Task 1

Today we had a task in Lijak area. We were all waiting at the landing for predicted clear sky after 2pm and flying conditions.  At the end it turned out that we got the clear sky, but two hours later. We did the general briefing at 4 pm at the take off and short task with window opening at 4.40 pm.  Pilots got some thermalling, but weak ones. It was difficult today to stay in the air and fly the task. Anyway, we have some pilots doing well today and did some turnpoints of the task, so the task is valid. The points for the task will be very low. Looking forward for next days, weather forecast looks very promising! Tomorrow we have departure form the campsite at 10 am.
