Puddie makes stellar second attempt at Sion 194 – Brother Tubby feels the painful sting of younger brother's domination!

We’ve just gotten a report from the man himself.  He’s on course now and has flown 33km of 194km.  We are all anxiously awaiting his results.

Will he bump me out of third place?  Tune in later to find out!

We are hoping for some progress reports from the field!

And here is the first:

10:42 – Left tp1 at 31 minutes

10:56 – Adjacent to start at 45 minutes

11:09 – Turn point 2 at task time 1:03 (That’s about four minutes faster than I was)

11:24 – 6 miles out at task time 1:17

He has finished in 1:19:12 and is now in second place, pushing me down to fourth!

Here are some comments by the master pilot:

“I was flying for about MC4 or maybe a bit higher, I think 115kts. But this
was mostly downhill. (from TP1 back)”

Here are some shots of his flight:
