Ager Women's Open, Task 4, September 1

The skies started off similar to yesterday but with no potential for rain, so we set another task that kept us around the Ager area and not over the back.  SE winds in front of the ridge meant getting to the start took a while for the slower gliders but there was plenty of lift as the cu's started popping despite the overcast about 15 minutes before the start.

I had an excellent start and was actually ahead of Laurie and everyone else until on the way back from the first TP when her superior machine passed mine.  At that point it was basically a race between the 5 or 6 of us behind her and we raced around the course, landing in goal in 1:24 or 1:25.

We had about 11 pilots in goal today and the skies stayed friendly all day.  Swimming afterwards at the Camping pool and a BBQ tonight!
