Another day is over. I had a much better day today.
Nobody could explain why the task setter did send us to a turnpoint in the middle of an irrigation area where no one has ever seen it being any good. Ever. This is where you send people when you want them to land out, especially on a blue day. And of course it happened - few hit the deck or flipped the engine switch exactly over there - on the first turn point. Nothing but absolutely dead air there ...
I was among the lucky ones to get away from 1,500 ft AGL several times and scratch our way out of that area. Then it was booming again and we had fun in the blue.

After 4 days of intensive and tricky flying we are all quite tired. Early exits to our room and many hours of sleep keep us well and fit. It better be this way as we will be flying for the next 4 days for sure.
It's bed time. Good night!
