First Day of World Championships:


We flew 4 rounds today. It takes 2 hours per round with 63 pilots (3 are Junior Pilots). Partly sunny and cold today. Goorer Berg Slope today. Very close to the hotel.

Winds started at 16 mph to 22 mph, quartering from the right. Pilots are being challenged to figure out a flying style/ballast choice that works on this slope under these crossing conditions. Lots head scratching today by all Teams. The last round was flown under diminishing conditions. Tim flew 4th from last so that hurt his score since it was so light, but again, it should all even out given we fly a lot of rounds.

Team USA is flying well, just not satisfied with our results but then few Teams are since the conditions are so challenging today. We know the WC is a marathon and we have to stay focused on the long term. We flew from 9am to 6pm. Unfortunately several pilots damaged their airplanes by hugging the slope so tight and then touching the grass with a wing tip and then crashing/cartwheeling badly. Everyone here is going for it and not holding anything back since there is no tomorrow so to speak.

The opening ceremony held at the Light House was off the Richter scale. The "bar" definitely got raised for opening ceremonies, more on that later in the week.

Still very poor upload speed at hotel so I will try bringing by computer to the field tomorrow since the WiFi on the field is very good. It will be a challenge to find the time to post but will try my best. Obviously first things first.

I got up at 3:30 am and tried this upload again. 45 minutes later it locked up on me....argh! I just tried again on another WiFi selection of the 3 offered here. It worked but still pretty slow.

The opening was stellar in 2012 too! The germans put on a class event, no doubt. Round 4 doesnt appear on the vault for some reason

They are having to manually input into the Vault so it is taking a while.
