The first I knew about pilots' progress was a text from Ruth, who was down at about 80km. She reported a lot of cirrus and an unhelpful cross wind. Had I over set the task?
Eventually the word came in: 6 pilots in goal, led by one of the best XC pilots I know, Phil Wallbank. Result! Congratulations to all and commiserations to Ruth. She was top woman though!
