Monday 31st July: Task 4 is planned

The wind yesterday was not as strong as forecast.  It looks similar today, with the wind already less than the forecast.  Today is also the first task of the Class 5 competition which will run alongside the world championships for the rest of this week.  Both competitions will fly the same task today, a 151km course, similar to yesterday but not flying so far to the east.  Launch for the Class 2 gliders is planned for 11.30.  The Class 5 rigid hang gliders will start launching at 12.00.  All pilots will be released on Aspres la Longeagne to await the start of the race, planned for 12.30 and 13.30 respectively.
