55 pilots have entered the Nationals - Standard 19 pilots, Open x 8, 18 metre x 12, 15 metre x 16. 41 pilots launched on practice day, several resting after the Vic State Comp last week.

Cu was predicted over the distant mountains and to the north-east, with max temperature around 34 degrees, moderate instability and some thermal distortion.

The day turned out to be blue and there was less cu on track than predicted; there were 7 or 8 knots at 7,000\' but it was difficult below 5,000\' and conditions weakened at the end of the task.
