Today's task proved to be a tricky one. Two turn points were out in the flats and they were not easy to get. Special 1st "flat" turn point sent to the ground almost half of the field. So nine pilots were clever enough to get to the goal, with Manfred Ruhmer first, Franci Peternel second and Primož Gričar third. All in all the task and flying it self make (almost) everybody happy.

Regarding the weather condidtion we set 113 km long task, combining ridge racing and flatland flying. The pilots are now somewhere half throught the task. It's not an easy task, so we hope to spot some gliders approaching goal soon.

Today we finnaly have no more burja wind - what a relief.We are going to Lijak launch place again - goal will be at Pizzerija Anja so official transport will leave ASAP from there competition office. The task briefing at launch will be at 12:00.

The conditions today on Lijak launch were very nice. Giving the still strong bura wind we waited some time to get in the well known frame of 10m/s on Kovk launch. This never happend - it came close, to 12 m/s but then went back to 14 m/s again. The decision of organizer and safety commity was to cancel the task. Of course all pilots took off to get some free flying - and later report that air was not that bad at all and the task was very possible. Another lesson to learn. Anyway most pilots was happy with the decision as their safety was big consideration. The realitiy is that nice comp day is lost and some pilots let us understand this very clearly - but hey - we knew that allready.

So we hope that forcast for tommorow will come true to have a nice task.

We still have strong bura wind this morning but forcast is that it will stop during the day. So the decision is to go to the Lijak launch place. We start loading gliders on official transport at 10:30 at Lijak landing place - the Lijak landing place will be the goal field for today. The task briefing will start at 12:30, any further information about the task will be given at briefing.

We had a pleasent few hours in worlds best ultra light planes production company Pipistrel. The Pipistrel'r PR Taja Boscarol had great presentation about their company, history, production, planes and the future. Apperently the founder and overall boss Ivo Boscarol is not from planet Earth at all - his ideas are not only out-of-the-box but out-of-the-planet as well.

Giving the weather situation and the fact that wind is not getting slower on the eastern part of Vipava valley we decided to cancel today's task. However we organize excursion to the Pipistrel factory. They produce the ultra light and general aviation planes - it will be interesting for sure.

At the evening at 6pm we organize a free dinner for all Aeros Winter Race 2016 pilots at Pizzerija Anja. Welcome!

Tommorow we proced as scheduled!

Giving the strong NE wind in the area and knowing about the reputation of the eastern launch (Lijak) we decided to pospond the decision about today's task. We are monitoring the situation to make a good decision - anyway the final decision will be accepted and published until 11AM.
