Rieti 195—Second Attempt

All I can say is that I made it.  conditions seemed considerably worse than yesterday, which is perfectly possible because weather is set to random to prevent cheating.  Today’s track is in blue.  Perhaps I should have gone for ridge lift on the first leg where I did yesterday (see the red arrow pointing out the spot.)

Thermals were pretty much useless.  The best combination was a thermal going off on a ridge, which I managed to use a few.  The green arrow near TP2 marks the area where I took advantage of ridge lift that worked out better than I hoped for.  The problem is, it took me much to long to get there!
