Well done JP, good showing (especially as your more of thrash merchant than a ‘wafter’!).  What are you flying?  

Looks greener down there than last time I was there so I guess they have had plenty of rain this year the same as us.  Say hello to Jacky and Tobias.

Well Greg I wasn't of any help despite asking Peter for the team. JP and Peter had been doing so well that even I couldn't prevent winning the team trophy.  😶

In Round 1 I had to get used to the course and had two semi cuts. In round 3 I had such good lift that there had been no climb out at all. I flew in light rain in round 4 which wasn't helpful and in round 5 I was in the downdrop of conditions. The wind meter was beeping while getting below 3m/s then stopped for a second to beep again. Only round 2 and 7 had been reasonable.

I share your pain brother Daniel, but sometimes its the presence of the discreet team member that enables the overall performance.

Do not be down hearted, you are a Tea Swiller and the victor of Vogesen - a triumphant performance, despite the adversity!!! 😎👍
