Dutch Open - Day 2 - cancelled
The second day of the Dutch Open was canned during flight due to the increasing WNW winds and darkening skies. It was very hard just to fly west along the ridge just to get the start never mind fly the 60+km task around the valley. It was one of them days where it was nice to be on the ground rather than in the air. Malcolm Brown carried on flying in wave and nearly did the course. He has no radio and no one, but no one got their legs out to show the task had been canned! I flew by at least 10 guys and not one acknowledged me. Crackers!
We will see what today brings as the sun is out and there is no wind so far.
