Day 4 task is set

Metman was delayed as he was flying back from the Isle of Wight and the winds were a bit strong for his Cub. So, we did an initial review via the more traditional sources and when he arrived he validated what was generally though - increasingly strong SE/ESE winds, thermals to 5000' going blue with the odd small Cu appearing here and there. Day likely to die off around 17:00.

Task for the day is a 2 1/2 hour AAT -

Booker Bridge (BOB) - Moreton-in-The-Marsh (MOR, 25km circle) - Northampton South (NOSA, 30km circle) - Booker SW (BO1, 1km circle) - Booker Finish 1 (BF1). This provides a range of distances from 114.5-307.1km.

Off to the grid as first launch is slated for 11:15. I'd better hurry....
