The sky is blue today and forecast says low nordwest winds it is the reason for high motivation of pilots. Finally one valid task ! Race to goal over two turn points of 106 km.  First leg of 35 km goes to the west to the Millstaetterlake and then to goal in Seeboden.  Race begins at 12:30 and nice flight conditions welcome us in the air. We can easy climb up to 2.700 m to the base. All pilots stay closed  together in first 20 km. The fun stops when the weather changes after one hour and the sky is covered with cirrus clouds. Short before first turnpoint is the run decided there is only one thermal on one place, who miss it goes to land. We climb together with Thomas up to the base make first turn point and climb again on the same place. Then we try to catch first group and take care of snowfalls.It is cold !  Sky is now covered and there are no thermals.  There are about twenty pilots soaring on one place trying to go up a bit for final glide. The race is over we try to glide as far as possible. On one hand just few landing fields on other hand many powerlines. Heebie-jebbies. Best is Gregory Blodeau with 67,5 km, seconds are Kaoru Ogi and Martin Orlik with 66,5 km. Thomas comes to 62 km and a bit back is Urban .
