Let’s get ready, charge your gears, prepare your ballasts.
Meeting will be as announced at 9AM on friday, with registration and end of free flights at 10AM so we can start if wind is also on time.
once again, there is a red light at the tunnel before arriving, so be ready for up to 20minutes of wait if you are very unlucky in front of the stop.
Preparez vous, chargez vos modeles, prenez bien vos ballasts.
Le rendez-vous est confirmé vendredi matin a 9h, avec l’enregistrement et la fin des vols libres a 10h afin de lancer le concours si le vent est bien a l’heure egalement.
Encore une fois, n’oubliez pas qu’il y a un feu rouge au tunnel, preparez vous a jusqu’a 20minutes d’attente si vous n’avez pas de chance devant le stop.
as registration is now closed, with 34 pilots confirmed, please find below the flying order.
I made up some teams as not everyone specified one, and simply based on registration time made the team flying order, to garantee enough time in between same team pilots to help each others.
We will be staying at the Hotel du Centre, in Tende, details in the Banquet/Hotel section if you want to stay at the same place!
Registration has opened today, welcome onboard!
Registration will start April 1st 2014. Stay Tuned!
So that everyone can check and analyze their scores and times, find attached all the times recorded.
You will also find in this spreadsheet useful information such as Cuts, Reflies, Penalties and average wind speed during all your flight.
FAI Caussols Overall Results
As said before, new day, new slope!
We were forecasting South-East wind on Sunday and already in the morning, clouds were showing at the distance.
The usual south slope would have wind coming slightly from the left, risks of reflies, and fog could be dangerous and prevent us from making new rounds.
We decided to go close to yesterday’s slope, oriented 160-170deg so this would already make it 20deg better than the normal location. also, as we were far from the clouds, we would have at least 1hour before it would come to us (1round) if not clear sky for all day.
Wind was fairly light, and sometimes lift would be very limited even if there was 4m/s and no cross wind (but cold air). Some pilots got tricked by the A base that had very limited visibility if pilot started diving…… no see no beep!!
So in the end, four more rounds were flown. Stephane Riccobono did not leave any bits of what he got, Michael Krebs and Philippe Lanes also. Reto in great performance unfortunately did a cut on his last round and lost many points there. Some other pilots were still unlucky and simply got bad air.
Final Results after a total of 8 rounds are below.
Team results (updated from yesterday’s prize distribution as there was an error on the spreadsheet calculating the team points.
Many thanks to all judges and to you all pilots who came!
A few refly and many 60s, best time 48. Wind is now back in the 5+ and already a 52 by Stéphane Riccobono as he opens the 6th round.
…. New slope. 5-6 m/s, launching the fifth round on a kew slope facing wind perfectly.
End of the Day, the 5th round could not be made as wind was becoming too west and low.
Below results after 4 Rounds flown today.
