Could have been awkward if most of the Aus team had got wiped out together, but we survived despite getting bogged during some oncoming truck evasion manoeveres. Obviously pilots do not have no entry signs in the sky!
The end of the worlds was anticlimactic with the last task being called due to some suss air around launch. Attila had launched early and completed the task in about 2 hours.
The closing ceremony had lots of flag waving and the Italians also had much to wave their flag about.

Predictably the flying became epic the day the comp finished. Grant Crossingham from team Pom and I flew to Castellucio after the presentation. Louisa chased us with their two kids so we did not bother coming back. After doing a circuit of the awesome valley we landed and had dinner in the town.
Next day I helped drive Francoise and Margo to their magnificent home just outside Montpellier.
I had some interesting flying in Francoise's S3 nearby, first at Ganges:
