Comment

Declared 502 km triangle. Completed at 150.41 kph. Heartbreak at the end. 10 km from the finish I was averaging 160 kph but was 1500 feet too low for the minimum finish height. I climbed to the minimum height in a thermal 6 km from the finish, and hoped that I could maintain this height for the last 6 km. I couldn't. So 2 km before the finish I had to go searching for another thermal to gain the needed height, resulting in a loss of 10 kph by the time I finally crossed the finish line. But it was a great Nevada soaring day nonetheless.
