polar bear,

As I understand it after doing a bunch of it this last weekend with the US team guys there, it doesn't matter which way you turn, just as long as you go across the base.

If you do cut a turn, then it is worth it to go back to get across, because you will lose two laps if you don't, but there is no rule that says you have to turn back, or can't turn back...

You should have seen some of the team guys following the lift, and ending their distance runs with 30 or so laps about a mile down wind from where they were standing....

I was dying when I had that low-level three leg worth thermal on that one distance flight.
As the pilot, I was "tripping out" that my plane was still up.... What the heck did that look like from a spectator's point of view??

Distance is hard
Distance is fun
Distance ROCKS!
