Regionals - Third Day - Tasks set

Nils the Metman prognosis included strong Southerly winds, showers turning thundery and lots of top cover at 9000'. Added to this were observations about 2-3kts thermals and sea air penetrating into the task area, which could actually decrease the risk of showers. Quite a small window so, tasks set:

Task A - Booker (BOO) - Booker Bridge (BOB) - Buckingham (BUC) - Oxford South (OXS) - Booker SW (BO1) - Booker - 113.4km.

Task B - Booker (BOO) - Booker Bridge (BOB) - Towcester (TOW) - Didcot (DID) - Booker SW (BO1) - Booker - 151.2km.

First launch not before 11:00.

A rain shower arrived at around 11:00 so we relocated to the clubhouse. Sat pics don't look encouraging currently but we're watching and waiting...
