Comment

Good soaring day but not as good as most forecasts indicated. Mission was to claw back into 1st place in Region 10 OLC standings.

Launched first and floated for an hour before it popped. Then got going ok before that low point. Three tractors working a field and I found 1 knot and dumped the water. The second leg went pretty well, better than usual for a crosswind leg for me. Today was a good chance to get comfortable again in the Cirrus, learn how to feel my way to the core, center quickly, etc etc.

Final leg I was getting chased by high cirrus shadow as the day died ahead. Lots of long best L/D glides and weak climbs. Last decent one was in smoke from a field burning. Stretched out a few more miles with the extra altitude and landed last.

Good day!
