BAPA Comp - Owens Valley - Sept. 2010
We met at the Motel in town at 9am and had a large parade up to the Paiute launch. There were a lot of new faces so we did a site briefing and an extensive pilot meeting.
The task was from Paiute Launch North to Montgomery Creek (just short of Boundry Peak) the South to the Flynn LZ - 86Km or 53 miles.
I launched about 40 minutes before the 12:45 start and had a decent start. Kansas, Jug, Fred and I were leading out for much of the first 20 mile leg to Montgomery Creek. The winds were light, but definitely had a South component. Just after tagging the turnpoint, I was heading into a nice bowl on about 1/2 speed-bar when the right line severed and I was suddenly without speed-bar for the 30 mile upwind leg to goal. . .
My flight is HERE.
Scores will be HERE.
