Forbes day 9

Well another hard task call with different weather forecast predicted. The task was a 169km dogleg to the North East. We had stable northerly winds near the start gate and then we hit a SW wind with clouds around 10,000ft. We quickly made the turnpoint of 65kms before turning and heading north towards goal. The clouds stopped and we ended up back into the blue stable airmass which proved to difficult for anyone to make goal. I flew for 6 hrs again and landed 22kms from goal coming in 5th for the day while Zac won the day landing only 2.4km short of goal. Here is a quick video for you to watch.
