Sports Class Comp Day 4 - Winner Maurice Honey Again!

Posted 10 years, 7 months ago    0 comments

In advance of the weather bomb about to hit, Fin set us a task to the south – Matamata – Putaruru (10km)  - airfield – Okoroire (5km)  - home – Now for some that might seem simple – but add in an easterly that was cutting off the thermals and making them hard to “manage” a ridge that wanted to dump you several kms out, a blue hole over the airfield  and a humid airmass that didn’t want you to venture too high – then it led to several interesting challenges. 

Notwithstanding these Maurrie came in first yet again followed with only 2 points in arrears by Paul Schofield (how close can you get!) and a close third being Tim Bromhead – well done to you all.  It was a challenging day with some of us having to take two tows and most taking more than one try at the start gate.  Most memorable for me was loosing 1000ft between the southern side of the Gore residence to the spud patch – yes I know its only across the road but really indicative of the easterly wave hitting and interrupting – and guess who didn’t twig to it!!! But it sure made for a more cautious return from there onwards. 

All in all – a great day and thanks to Finn for calling such a fine task!!

Thanks Robbin for today's writeup.
