World Cup 2014 Serra da Estrela, Portugal Task 4.3

The Linhares launch was selected for the third task. The forecast was good with light westerly winds and a moderate cloud base around 2,000m rising to about 2,500m later. A slightly more challenging task was set to the north east over 75km which proved to be too much for more than half the field landing along the way. There were fewer than fifty in goal with a good number of Gin pilots showing up.

All in all a magnificent day of flying in mild conditions. Thomas Brandlehner was the first Gin pilot in goal followed by Semih and Andre. The Gin team is still looking good and the individual contest has Andre, Thomas, Carlos and Chikyong all well positioned.
