Last day, Region 10 SSA Competition, 2019
TrueBlue 5mi, 4000' max
K Ranch 18mi
Gates Ranch 8mi
Texas World Speedway 10mi
SCOH 2mi, 1300MSL min

Found XL5 (Mike Brooks) in the start cylinder after the gate opened and we team flew. Started off really weak and had to take a couple of 1.5kt thermals to stay above 2000' AGL. Working band was 3000 to cloud base (4000' +), and getting below 2000' was probably not wise. Started firming up after the first turnpoint to the north. Mike did a great job picking out a line, and that made the day I think. After the last turnpoint and 25 miles out, I showed 2000' under at MC 5.0. I bumped on through a thermal that Mike took. Was able to bump home except for two turns fairly early in the "final" glide and that allowed me to squeak past Mike for the day's win in sports class. Bit of a gamble but the line going home looked good and things were really firming up so I thought it was a good bet. Had a ton of fun flying with Mike this week -- the Genesis II and the DG-200 are comparable ships in climb rate and glide ratio, so it makes a good pair for team flying.
