Canungra Classic day 2

Another early day at Beechmont, with a really early briefing and take off. Cloud base was higher than the day before, but it was difficult to get up fast, as there were long breaks between the cycles. When I finally started out on course, I was with about 5 other pilots and we managed to stay together nearly the whole course.
From the hills we went out to the flats up to Beaudesert, and just after the first turnpoint I got one of the real Aussie experiences - big bush fire, and the related really strong, smokey thermal. Smoked turkey ;)
Then back into the hills and towads the higher mountains along the border to NSW. Very scenic and great flying. About 20 guys made goal. Jonny, Dave May and Big Jon in the lead overall now.
I made it in as well and could move up 10 places in the overall rankings!
