The aim is to fly to set points in a certain time. “Easy,” you may think. Well, it is not. Up there the wind can push you around insidiously, creating a drift that leaves you way off line. The maps are based on thirty year old data and waypoints like dams or fence lines may not be detailed. When approaching what you believe should be your turning point the unexpected appearance of a recently built water feature causes panic - suddenly an impoundment appears right in front of you three minutes early! Panic… you cannot be too hasty in changing course as you might miss a set point, thus incurring penalty points.
