Summary written by Ruth Jessop
With beautiful blue skies a 97 km task was set taking the pilots west, then a long leg east, followed by a circuit round the end of the Disentis valley, then back to goal at Ilanz.
For Aaron Durogati it was the best day of the week - not too turbulent and with quite a few options.
For Christian Maurer, it was perfect, better than expected, with totally blue conditions. The air start gave everyone stunning views from 3900m.
Every time it looked as if it was going to be a procession to goal the pilots chose different route options.
For Felix Rodriguez, everywhere was working, no need to stop in weak thermals - a really good racing day.
It was a neck and neck race to end of speed between two veteran task winners Honorin Hamard and Stefan Wyss. Stefan won by 1 point bringing his task wins total to 23, inching his way nearer to Tim Bollinger’s Dad, Han’s overall lead of 28 task wins.
The first 98 pilots made goal, and thus all flew the same distance, and gained the same distance points. Today’s winner is therefore the one with a combination of the best speed points and lead out points.

2:26:17 Honorin HAMARD flying at 37.4 km/h
