    Windy.com indicates we’ll have a ridge of high pressure overhead, but pressure falling rapidly, providing us with abundant sunshine and maybe some instability, for our First Race Day. ASG 32 is booked, so I’ve opted to fly 88 - the ASW24.

    Ben advises the rules for this year’s race series have been finalized. You may review them on the VSA web page.
