The task was stopped due to strong gust fronts from an approaching front. As no one was in goal when the task was stopped the day will not be scored.
Here is Kelly Farina's report:
A forecast of moderate SW winds and embedded CbÃÂs later on. A short 45k task was quickly under way. I put myself in
a good position at the start, however the highest guys route under convergence to the first turnpoint was slower than
the low soaring route.
After a 6m/s climb on the South flank of the Cheval Blanc I climbed out in a lee side with Russell Odgen and Mark Hayman.
However to the NW trouble was brewing, a Cb had formed. We pushed on to the aerials and climbed again before heading east
to the final turnpoint. I was in around 15-20 position at this time. We expected a straight line, fast glide to the Pic
Chematte and back to goal. At this time the slower pilots still on the Cheval and Lambruise ridges were calling a ÃÂlevel 3'
(dangerous conditions). Nigel Prior threw his reserve and landed ÃÂsafelyÃÂ. The gust front had caught them.
After taking the turnpoint we turned into wind and the task was stopped. It was an extremely uncomfortable ride
down going backwards in a 50k wind to land in a narrow valley. The weather came in extremely fast and it was a
good call to stop the task, however 30mins earlier would have been better.
