Tag 3: Race gestoppt, Tag 4: Regen

Martin Scheel 5. November 2021 World Championships Argentinien
Nach langem Warten am Startplatz im Nebel konnte ein Task gestartet werden - musste aber leider wegen zunehmen turbulenten Verhältnissen gestoppt werden.
Yael Margelisch flog an beiden Durchgängen top, in der Gesamtrangliste liegt sie hinter Marcella Uchoa, weil der erste Durchgang mit max. 720 Punkten viel mehr zählte als der zweite (max. 132 Punkte).
Emanuelle Zufferey liegt auf Rang drei. Es sind auch die beiden Frauen, die am besten für die Nationenwertung gepunktet haben.

Der offizielle Bericht:
Today started off with a bit of blue and a bit of back-wind at times, but everyone managed to take off. Threats of rain later on didn’t dampen hopes of a fast 67 km race to goal. However, Loma Bola once again proved to be a very challenging playground. The-out-and-return leg north saw many pilots struggling for a climb on
the way back.

Weak climbs, broken by windshear at ridge height, made the conditions difficult for 150 pilots in a gaggle to turn close to the terrain together. As they headed south to complete a large triangle, the wind increased above taskable limits, and many pilots not fortunate enough to get a good climb were stuck on the spurs protruding out into the flats.

Accordingly the task was stopped after 1 hour and 17 minutes. Due to the lack of progress round the course, and with no pilots in goal, the day was scored out of 98.5 points. With no pilots in goal those who won the day were the pilots with a combination of good distance points and lead out points. As nobody got to goal, there were no time points.
