World Champs: MEXICO - Day 9 Task 7

Team Reporting

97km triangle through 7 turn points.
Cloud Base >3400m ASL
Thermals 6.5m/s
Goal G01 on the lake.
Another great day for flying after two rest days.
There were four reserve deployments including Nevil who ended up hanging from a thirty meter tree three seconds after deploying behind the infamous el Penon or 'finger'. He was rescued by the expert team who according to the organisers have LOTS of experience (good grief!). A video will be available on youTube documenting the whole experience.
Andre and Henry got in to goal ok and Desi did a couple of turn points.
All in all an eventful day with a couple of mid-air collisions thrown in for good measure.
