23:30: With the seen forecast for tomorrow, we think the chance for a task is too low due to strong wind. It might still possible to go for local flying. We decided to make the trophy giving ceremony tonight anc cancel the last task.

18:00: Hi there. Don't forget official dinner with party at the HQ at airfield at 21:00.
Bus at hotel at 20:45. See you there.

10:30 Briefing at the airfield: Today no task but (flying-)site seeing to Freixo de Espada a Cinta at the Douro River. The wind was too strong again for flying, so we went down into the Douro river gorge for a nice swim in the river and a visit of the 11th century town of Freixo de Espada a Cinta. The Doro River is the border to Spain.

+++ SMS: Bus at Hotel at 09:45am. Please be at HQ at 10:00. +++

Congratulations to the day winners
- Martin Lauk DE (UP Summit XC2)
- Przemyslaw Wojtkiewicz PL (Ozone Mantra M4)
- Andy Jaxa-Rozen PL (Dudek Optic)

A great achievement for Andy who's legs are paralyzed and who launches with the help of his friends. Once he is airborne he can enjoy his flight like all of us. Thank's to the perfect retrieve organization in the Mirandela XC-Open by Team WIND using live trackers for all pilots and retrieve cars Andy is able to fly in this competition as well.
