SCFR 2019 is a wrap with a clean sweep for Moyes taking out the
top five places.

Once again for 2019 the competition was decided on the final day with a complete
switch around of the podium.
Tyler Borradaile takes the win on his Moyes RX3.5Pro Skylite.
Jonny Durand takes 2nd place just a single point... mehr

These are the main elements of the story on the last day of the
2019 Santa Cruz Flats Race. Zac Majors has been leading the competition going
into the last day. He will fly aggressively on the last day as he has all week
and not just try to keep over the guys closest to him in the competition.
Here is the start of the task for most pilots at... mehr

It was intimidating as he stood near the same place where a
hang-gliding mishap less than a year ago nearly cost him his life.
But once Chris Gursky’s flight began, it was a great part of a “fabulous” trip.

These are Greg Kendall's two tracks, one from the Flymaster
Tracker and one from his 5030. There are consistent with all the other altitude
graphs that I have presented in this issue, where the Flymaster track shows a
higher altitude on the SeeYou "altitude" chart, which is supposed to display
barometric altitude.

The red line is the... mehr

Kraig's Flytec 6030 is set to record a track point every ten second. The blue

On the same day, but at a different turnpoint, Greg Kendall also
experienced his Flymaster tracker missing a turnpoint, just as Jonny's Flymaster
tracker did.
Here are the two track logs, one of the Flymaster Tracker and one from Greg's
5030.

Let's take a little closer look:

The red line track is from his 5030 and the blue is from the... mehr

I asked Joerg Ewald:
On Sunday at the Santa Cruz Flats Race in Casa Grande, Arizona the task
committee called a task with a 13 kilometer goal cylinder. The idea was to make
it safer to land on the east side of the Francisco Grande hotel. There were a
lot of easier ways to make this happen, but that's what we were stuck with.
I set up the task... mehr

Jim Prahl pulled me to the east to where I got to climb up quickly
to 7,300' all by myself. The problem was that it was still to too early.
Searching around I got down to 5,700' near the edge of the start cylinder as the
first start window opened. I headed back to find a way to get back up but don't
find it as other pilots did and climbed to... mehr

Here is what Jonny Durand's two tracklogs (one from the Flymaster
Tracker and one from his Flytec 6030) from the task on Wednesday look like:

Let's take a closer look:

The red line is the track log from the Flytec 6030. It is clear from this
picture that the Flymaster Tracker lost the connection to the GPS at a crucial
time and  it... mehr

The safety committee canceled the day because the forecasted gust
factor at launch time (1 PM - 2 PM) was greater than 5 mph.
The National Weather Service forecast:
Sunny, with a high near 101. Breezy, with a south southwest wind
10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.

The four models on XCSkies were forecasting 20 - 25 mph gusting
winds... mehr
