Soca Open - Task 3

We have 62 km long task today. At the beginning we have really stable conditions, so we  opened the window later in the day. The conditions were improving constantly, most of the pilots got the climbs and were in good bosition before opening the starting cyclinder at 14.45. Pilots flew today to the Polovnik first. After this ridge flying they crossed the valley and back to high mountains (Zabiski Kuk). Last part of the race it was really interesting. Again we had more and more cloud cover, so it was difficult to reach the last turnpoint and goal. We have around 15 pilots in the goal and manny close to the final line. The winner of the task is Dušan Orož, 2nd Tilen Ceglar, 3rd Jože Molek. 

Other news

Friday was the day when we finally went to our home mountain here, Kobala take off place.

We had a very rainy overcasted sky in the morning yesterday but at Lijak the sky was clearing up so we went there to make a task. A short one, due to quite low cloudbase with many pilots in goal.

As the wind didn't went down early this morning we moved the pilot field to Lijak, 40 km south of Tolmin.

We start the German open in a bit chilly weather with registration in Camp Gabrje. Tomorrow looks like a nice flying day and we should be flying in the Soča valley.
