Great weather, great racing, very nice turn out. Thank you for everyone that helped in any way. Has to be one of the best clubs in the nation. I'm happy to be part of this club.

Congrats to the top three open class pilots that all finished within 30 seconds of each other. I led much of the race, although it was mainly from below until the last lap where I finally had to start digging myself out of the hole I raced myself into, but one of my best finishes.

I'll have the animation up soon.

Chad your restart of the task was not recorded correctly as a result of a current bug in FS. The bug has been there for some time. The bug as described shows up when the race is started and the pilot continues to the first way point and then chooses to restart the task after reaching the first WP. Only 29 points deducted, not really enough to change any places.

Notice Will actually flies a little faster than I but because I took the first start and I led most of the task (yes, even though I did the course low), I was awarded leading points and beat him. Lesson, always take the first start if you can.

Typo for the sport track logs and now cannot edit due to fast cgi error, so here's the updated link to the track logs for the sport class

Thank you Jeff. Part of the enjoyment is in seeing exactly how I did and how I could have done better.

Here's an animation of the top four pilots that were pretty much leading the race. Top 3 all finish within 30 seconds of each other.

Holy crap that finish was close. First and second were separated by only ONE second. Thanks for the animation Chip!

Another nice thing for some perspective, I've converted the track logs and included them into a Google earth file. You can see all of the track logs for the open class overlaid on Google earth. I've also made the cylinders for the course so you can see the boundaries of the waypoints and the entry start.
