Comment

Last of five great Nephi soaring days this year. Excellent day just not as strong as forecast. The moisture moved out quicker than predicted and the Wasatch Plateau where I had planned two thirds of my task today was mostly blue. Thermal height was also a bit lower than predicted (16k max vs 18k forecast). Keen to stay high, I took a lot of weak climbs where I had anticipated high speed cruising under a continuous cloud street. Had set a 763 km task (Pfeiler Ranch, Strawberry Reservoir, Whiskey Knoll). Made the first two TPs but ran out of lift on my way south to TP3. Great practice though trying to go where your task tells you to go instead of taking the easy route. Great end to a great week. Special thanks to John and Brenda Seaborn for all their help and advice. It's been invaluable! John's flight trace from today is truly humbling. And many thanks to Bruno Vassel for organizing the wekk!
