Florida ridge task 3

The launch line Well with a similar forecast the task comittee set a 145kms task with 3 turnponts. The day was not as good as they thought and some pilots struggled to fly the course. I had a bad start and then just kept pushing all day trying to catch Andre who was leading for most of the course. I somehow managed to pass everyone before the last turnpoint but had to stop for a slow climb. I still thought Andre was in front of me so I was patient before heading off and gettting a strong 800 up. I then did final and made goal first doing the task in about 2hrs 30 mmins. About 10 or more flexwings made it to goal and a handful of rigids. Towing up on day 3 Todays Video I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it..
