Wow, what a great day. Some excellent speeds around the task, about 250km on average.

Start was tricky with a strong cold wind from the lake keeping thermals at bay. A number of relights. On task was fine, and then there was a magnificent convergence line up to 7000 feet at the bottom turn point, so that was a lot of fun.

Some pics from on course.

Convergence. It was way better than being in the lake breeze.

I gave my brother an underwater camera a while back... 7km out from Hahei
