Taupo Contest Day 1

Posted 6 years, 7 months ago    0 comments

The Club Class nationals has started in Taupo. This year we have 11 fearless competitors.

The practice day yesterday went well, with a good run out over the forests to the east of Taupo.

Today was even better, although tricky at times especially north where the thermals were softer and harder to core. We went up to Tirau, then down to the bottom of lake Taupo. There was a bit of wind at times making the thermals tricky to find, but there were definitely a few goodies in there.

Everyone bar one made it back home, with a couple of landbacks.
