19th HG Worlds - Day 6 - Task 5

Interesting day it was, as predicted by the task committee (In-Tree-Esting). Pretty string winds, 2 forest crossings, a bit of wave on the first glide, a 7 m/s thermal to 4200 m and a 50 km fight against a 40 km/h wind.

Nobody made goal as the task was stopped when the winds increased even more. I was happy to be on the ground. The local farmer checked and offered help to every single pilot landing in his field.
