Another reasonable day despite a southwest wind arriving to try and spoil the fun. The PW5's found the wind too much to fly the task but the open had a challenging day with thermals broken but workable up to 4,500ft. A convergence west of Te Aute made the day by making the southern turn possible which saw six pilots getting round. Due to some misunderstandings about airspace there were some infringements that had to be sorted. David Hirst won the day at 98kph, a good effort, with Hugh de Latour second - honours to the two Ventus CT pilots. Obviously wingspan helped today!
