Day 2 Austrian Open: Day cancelled

Team Turkey at Emberger Alm launch

Strong wind was the forecast and clearly visible in the air. A short 60km task was set but then cancelled on the ground. Half the pilots flew - higher up they reported strong turbulence, and the wind changes and strength at goal were not funny. I packed up instead and watched it from the ground. Im sure there will be a better day.
A big wave cloud made it difficult to get down in the valley, and the forecast is for a cold front approaching today with rain and storms tonight. Hopefully after the barbecue party the organizers prepared for the pilots tonight! A little bit of rain has already moved through.
Tomorrow more rain and storms are predicted, so our hopes are on Sunday.
Jörg on launc
