Rieti 195—Try one

It’s been several weeks since I did an online glider race.  I just made a first attempt at the Team South Africa Rieti 195.  I crashed several kilometers from the finish!  I should have know better than to rely on the mountains (indicated by the red arrows) below to gain enough altitude to complete the last leg!  I should have tried to gain more altitude on the steep slope indicated by the green arrow.
