Day 11

We had a good flight today, starting fairly early in fear of the approaching blue.

The run to the forest was OK and the downwind leg over the forest along the Belarus border was fantastic. At one time I saw 5 m/s average! The first turnpoint in Poland was right at the edge of the clouds and there were wisps most of the rest of the way home.

The French caught us at the third turnpoint after taking a later start. They zigged and we zagged on the leg to the steering turn. Today was their day.

We gained on a few and lost ground to a few today. François is still within striking distance of the podium for tomorrow, along with 3 or 4 others. It should be a great day to finish off the contest.
