Day 9, Task 8..

So… it appears to all that with the late starts (13:30etc) and it isn’t possible to really go earlier due to conditions that the tasks are a touch on the long side. 

Yesterday a case in point; no pilots in goal of 118km task and best effort by Primoz at 106 with our guys mostly getting around the 97km mark.. 

we run out of flyable day as it’s totally switched off by 1645/1700. 

We haven’t had the *typical* Brasilia day since maybe Day 1. 

After being used as a task briefing pillow by GR ( TLs duties are wide and various!) off they went..

Nonetheless the boys flew great, and we were fortunate to be invited to Vicki Cains Moyes party in the evening. A great night 🙂

This morning Grant and I got up at 0400 so he could be interviewed on BBC radio.. a very early start! 

Last comp day today people.. no medals in sight but some great and gutsy performances from All the GB guys.
