Friday 28th July: Task 1: First task for real

The weather is looking similar to yesterday, so the task planned for today looks similar to yesterday's practice task. A 181km out and return from Aspres, south to Laragne-Chabre, east to Tromas, north to Morgon near lac Serre-Ponçon, and north east back to Aspres. Pilots are preparing now and expect to launch at midday. Today’s detailed and (mostly) accurate weather forecasts enable the optimum tasks for the day to be set with greater confidence.
