Class I (women), II, V World Championship, Task 4

May the 21th… A blue day. All pilots take off in a cloudless sky for, again, some challenging tasks. Women in Class I get a out and return leg to Dallas (FL, not TX!), 52,7 km away. Class V rigids have to fly a 158,7 km triangle. Class II has 221,8 km and 4 turnpoints to check. 5 out of 6 Swift make goal, and 80 % of the Class V pilots too. Class I again has a hard time, as the blue sky is followed by a veiled one. The task results… Class I: Natalia Khamlova (RUS), Françoise Dieuzeide (FRA), Corinna Schwiegershausen (GER) Class II Manfred Ruhmer (AUT), Robin Hamilton (UK), Brian Porter (USA) Class V: David Chaumet (FRA), Gil Souviron (FRA), Alessandro Ploner (ITA) Overall… Class I: Corinna Schwiegershausen (GER), Kari Castle (USA), Natalia Khamlova (RUS) Team: USA, DEU, RUS Class II: Manfred Ruhmer (AUT), Robin Hamilton (UK), Brian Porter (USA) Team: USA, AUT, GBR Class V: Robert Reisinger (AUT), Alessandro Ploner (ITA), Gil Souviron (FRA) Team: FRA, ITA, AUT Complete (unofficial) results can be found at http://flytec.com/Events/2006/2_5_w_worlds/scores.htm
