Serres La Batie Challenge – Final Results

I just finished the last race of this series.  I only got two or three good thermals in the whole race although I got many before the start.  I made a mistake right out of the start and went way right of course to porpoise under a cloud.  After that I ended up doing a lot of zig-zagging.  I was pretty wary because Andries Lombaard landed out and I wanted to make sure I didn’t do the same.  Since the weather is now randomized, who knows what kind of conditions others had.

My position for this final race is 10th but that’s not so great since only 12 people finished.  Pussto did really well.  He was 5th in this race and the was also 5th overall for the series.  I was right behind him in 6th so the Kiley boys made their best showing ever.

Below are our flight tracks.  Mine is red and Aaron’s (Pussto’s) is blue.  You can see how much shorter his distance was!
