…and this is why we have practice days..

An even earlier start towards launch to get us better in the comp mindframe.. Task; fly to the esplanade via the mandatory TP in order to avoid airspace. Boys rigged and launched in quick time …gravity had its pull on Grant and later; Malcolm but the rest made it in to the dauntingly impressive Esplanade.. Andy first in overall with Dave and Gordon after..

Ollie had a harness disaster and had to land, sort it, relight.. with his dedicated (and justifiably proud father) Nick even running around fields kicking off dusties to help his climb.. He arrived over goal hiiiigggghhh but still aced it. Good efforts all round.

More teams have now arrived and it was fantastic to see Yoko again.  Nick and I had coconut water for a staggeringly expensive 70p..its tough here in Brasilia 😉

Tomorrow is Registration and Opening Ceremony ;-))
