Manilla Task 2 and 3.

Day 2 started off, with shredded thermals and almost a very quick ride to the bail out. Fortunately I bumped into something that got me up. This is looking back south at Mt Borah launch. It was a 128km task, not a huge distance but a difficult day and only Blay made it to goal. The turnpoint wass the race track at Boggabri. I found no more thermals and landed 10km short of goal.

Todays task was a dogleg west and south, 101km or so. Different air much nice to fly in, although Maxim from Russia got tumbled distroying his glider in the air, getting seperated from it after deploying his chute. Fortunately he was able to walk away from the wreckage. The course line overlapped with a flight from Gullgong in the opposite direction. I am only just recognising the below geography. I flew with my teamate Warren most of the way today, it was great to work together as a team.
