Day 1 - Task 1.
The first day seems very promising. All pilots launched within 25 minutes in great conditions. The 60.5 km task was an easy job for half the pilots. 70 pilots celebrated their goal. An ideal beginning for the event.

Day 2 - Task 2.
61.1 Km task and the pilots have to work hard to goal. A variety of strategies has various results. 78 pilots manage to reach the goal. Everyone is pleased with the two consecutive great flying days. Many thought that the task was too difficult and they were surprised by the number of the pilots that goaled. The whole competition is valid by the second day!!!


Day 3 - Task 3.
Great instability and the task committee sets an 89.5 km task. A 20 km start cylinder, an out and return and then a 50 km run towards Tripoli. Strategy plays again a key role and the teams that work together have the advantage. 24 pilots at the goal.
