David,
In the conditions you have described a design with the attributes of the Aspire will do well. It is a clean airframe with great penetration, excellent handling, and it loves ballast. When it comes to competition one has to separate pilot skills and glider capability. Meaning a high performance glider design will always be capable, and will always perform better in a skilled pilots hands. The combination of a good glider, a pilot that has come with a good skillset, and the strategy and will to win is a tough combination. LJ
