Comment

The forecast called for WSW winds at 35-45 knots at 18,000 feet in the Minden area. The low level winds were expected to be lighter than desired and instability was forecasted below 10,000 feet. Not the best day for wave. We launched at 7:30 AM and headed for our starting point 25 km south of Alpine and then headed north. Our first turnpoint at Honey Lake was the furthest north we would be able to get all day as a cold front moving SE created a cloud barrier and also interfered with the wave. After six legs we showed 1,077 km on the optimizer and headed back towards Minden. With a downwind extension of our final glide we added a small triangle to improve our score.
Many thanks to Jackie, Stewart, and Akiko for crewing.
