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.
