I just finished my first and only attempt at this race which is in the Austrian Alps.  I spent a lot of yesterday and most of today trying to learn how to use XCSoar (software on the iPaq that can be used instead of SeeYou PC).  I barely knew how to use it and my concentration was on the software rather than the race so I’m sure I could have done better.  I was 16th out of 39 finishers and a total of 74 racers.

The race take off airport was Reutten Hoefen.  The first turn point was Innsbruck shown on the right.  The Eastern Alps scenery was used which is a bit on the cartoonish side.  Here’s a shot looking back at the Reutte Hoefen airport from TP2.
