Sunday 30th July - Task 3 - Task is set

There were storms in the mountains early this morning and rain showers.  But the sky is already clearing and the forecast will allow a task to be flown today, despite a relatively low cloud base and a stronger breeze from the south.  Launch will start at 12.00 and the race is expected to start over Aspres le Longeagne at 13.00.  A 209km  zig-zag task across and back over the Buech and Durance area should keep the competitors in sight regularly through much of the afternoon.
