Today's report: Thursday Feb 2nd - DAY 4
(preliminary results)...

Site: Vallejuelo

Conditions: It just seems like conditions won't stop improving. The best day so far, with cloudbase up to 2600 m, healthy cumulus clouds all around, fast climbs and little wind.

Outstanding flights: And conditions where welcome indeed! Many outstanding flights, at least 10 of them over 60 km long with a couple of 80's and even one over 100! Tim Green took his acro glider Ozone 69 07 for a refreshing 64 km triangular ride. Uk's John Cardiff managed a 78 km flight over three turnpoints with a 40 km long final leg, on his Windtech Tempest. Italian Giuseppe Sigismondi flew 79km over three turnpoints and ended up scoring a 69 km triangle around Vallejuelo on his Gin Boomerang 3. Anthony Green on his Ozone 69 07 showed us how to see Valle de San Juan from every possible perspective. He flew Vallejuelo's range heading E and went deep into the plains in direction to Azua under convergence lift. Half the way to Sabana Yegua's dam, he turned and finished the valley crossing towards the central range. Once there, he climbed again to over 2200m and flew a final leg heading W, on the north side of the valley, completing an 81 km flight over three turnpoints. Aljaz Valic on his Mac Para Magus went for a similar route as on day 3, pushing further W on the 45 km long final leg, scoring an 84 km triangle. But the day was for Urban Valic, who flew his Mac Para Magus for 117 km over three turnpoints, with a 58 km final leg, only 2 km short from the Dominican straight distance record! This is,in fact, the Dominican record for distance over three turnpoints.

Day winner: Urban Valic.

Category 1 day winner: Canadian Greg Boyd on his Swing Arcus 4 with 58.7 points.

Category 2 day winner: Alex Heron from the UK flying his Swing Mistral 3, scoring 77 points.

Category 3 day winner: UK's John Cardiff on his Windtech Tempest, scoring 117.4 points.

Category 4 day winner: Italy's Renato Bota on his UP Trango, with 96.5 points.
