The overcast comes down, and so do the hopes for a racing day

The overcast was at 500 meter around grid time, and hopes were that it would go up to 600 m and maybe more mid-afternoon. When at 2:30 PM the sniffing towplane reported that the cloudbase actually had come down to 450 m, all hopes went the same way, down, and the day was canceled. Forecast for the remaining of the contest is for flyable weather every day from here on, improving greatly next week with temperatures soaring into the 30+ deg. C (~ 86 deg. F, literally a heat wave for this area). A demain donc.
