After revision, not so many airspace infractions. The airspace had been entered as 9 km diameter, should have been 5 miles. Unfortunately, it was my no-fly day -- I was launch fluffer and driver. Surprising how many of these PWC pilots have lousy launch skills. The main retrieve bus broke down, and I got drafted to drive the only other passenger van available on short notice. I returned with a full load at 10:30 PM and they asked if I would take another run. I declined. My replacement got back about 2 AM. Today is cancelled, expecting rain and wind in the afternoon. The rest of the week looks very promising.

Henzi was 39th for the day and received 722 points!!!!!
No one in to goal and lots of airspace infractions resulting in zero score for some. Dean Stratton was 4th

Frederic BOURGAULT and Bill Belcourt are still in the air and may make it past the leaders and into goal and have one pilot not to far behind still in the air.
Henzi landed about 93 miles from launch and placed well and had an amazing flight staying aloft as others were dirting.
