We have been coming to Porterville for ten years or more. I can quite honestly say that yesterday was probably the best day we have ever had. A 100km task to Clanwilliam was meticulously set by the task committee and flawlessly executed by half the field. Any fool that grumbles about task four needs a decade of therapy in my humble opinion.
Nevil took it from Andre and the French by a minute or two followed by the usual suspects. Anton narrowly missed giving us all another flying lesson when he landed short on final glide a good twenty minutes before the rest.
Anton and I had a wonderful run down the ridge to Skerpheuwel before going to the moon at Maan Berg @ 5m/s for 1,500m. Constriction was not working so I hung about while Anton went for the win.
