22nd September 2010 - Denizli, Turkey - Day 1 - Task 1 - Update [16:50]

There will be a lot of pilots in goal today. About 20 mins ago the lead gaggle (which was about 30 gliders) passed over the HQ on the way to goal - a second gaggle was about 5 minutes behind and there are still pilots appearing over the mountain now.

We were not able to see who was in the lead so now we are waiting for news from the goal.
