Sailplane Grand Prix Australia - Day 6 Summary

Day 6 was a hot and windy day, which provided its own unique challenges for our pilots.

This morning our briefing was quite short, as it looked like it was going to be another great day of gliding across the Wimmera. The task set was 328 kilometers in length – heading up to Hopetoun, West to Kaniva and then back to Horsham.

Today was the first day our pilots had the opportunity to gain some real height, with some of our pilots making over 12000 feet at points within the race, and travelling over 300km/h on the downwind leg.

Check out the links below for more information and replays of the day.
