Lacarno 221 Soaring Task

Lacarno 221 is this weeks soaring task on the Condor Soaring Team SA site.  It is quite a difficult race in the Swiss Alps.  I had a disastrous attempt on Thursday evening that took me 3 hours and 22 minutes!  Nothing seemed to be working for me, especially thermals!

I made another attempt this morning and finished in 1:52 which puts me in eighth place for now.  I still could have done much better, ideally.  I will try again tomorrow morning

Just completed the task!
