Conditions were light and wind direction was dictated by the thermals. That round the thermal was on the course. Mike launched downwind onto the course and thermaled up before getting off and back on course. Everyone else elelected to launch into the wind off course. They got on course and stroked laps while in the lift. Mike's strategy worked in this case because the lift stayed on course and he was able to work it before his working time started and during his working time. If there was any prevailing wind, this strategy may not have worked. Mike recognized that things were moving slowly and took advantage.
