Regionals - Fifth Day - Tasks are set

The low pressure system has moved into Scotland and is likely to be heading towards Scandinavia this evening. Meanwhile it's generating winds which will be 5-10kts stronger than yesterday. Likely to be a steady 25-30kts today but no wind gradient or shear expected - so less of a wave influence. Cloudbase is expected to be 4500'-5000' with 4kts climbs until 18:00.

Outlook for Thursday is that there's likely to be a soaring window before the showers arrive later in the day. So the plan is to prepare for an early start tomorrow.

Tasks for today:

Task A - Booker (BOO) - Booker Bridge (BOB) - Hurtsbourne Tarrant (HUR) - Marlborough (MAR) - Booker SW (BO1) - Booker Finish (BF1) - 149.8km.

Task B - Booker (BOO) - Booker Bridge (BOB) - Newbury South (NES) - Welford (WEL) - Booker SW (BO1) - Booker Finish (BF1) - 105.3km.

Some light showers, so we're going to prepare for launching at 13:00 in the hope that our Metman is wrong about the wind strength.
