Bir-Billing Day 1 Task 1

News from Andrew today:
"V nice 50 km task up and down the ridge under a low base (2400 at end of day) So plenty squeezing in and out of the gullies at treetop height.

No met wind.

Thermicals up to 6 m/s

Like a huge stonking Barberton


Russian 1st ( we were all above base at the start but he had 250 m on the field and we never caught him) Then Vijay and Nevil, Theuns, Me, Guprit.

Great flight, but a bit short. A slow climb costs. I blew my admin and went to the wrong tp. Cost 5 - 10 mins! Wot a wanker."
