Regionals - Last Day - Not giving up (yet)

Briefing at 11:00 started with congratulations to Nils the Metman for geting both the forecast spot on and for getting 1000 points on the AAT in his Club Class glider by flying 289.4km.

Today's forecast doesn't look promising, with the most optimistic outlook being a gap between the showers with cloudbase rising to 2000' and 30kt South-Westerly winds. However, we're going to hold on to see if the conditions improve sufficiently as there's fewer than 80 points seperating two pilots from the top place. Rebriefing, and probably a final decision, will take place at 12:00.
