Depart for Chabre again
Task Sportclass
task Class 1 & 5

Task stopped at 15:14 hrs, due to opcoming thunderstorm.
The first startgate was 14:00 hrs.
Interval between the startgates was 20 minutes.
In the local regulations it is said that a task should be at least 90 minutes.
So not a valid task for today.
Most pilots stranded near Aspres and flew to the local airfield.
