World Gliding Championships in New Zealand, 1995


Last Update: 5-January-1995

This information was sent to me directly from New Zealand by Bruce Hoult.



Today was the final day of official practice.  Tomorrow we have the
opening ceremony and the airshow.  The serious stuff starts on Sunday.
Hopefully I will be able to keep everyone adequately posted on the
contest proper.

-- Bruce


Weather Forecast

Situation: An anticyclone straddles nothern NZ and is drifting eastwards.
A frontal system is moving slowly eastwards over the south Tasman Sea.
The front is not expected to reach Fiordland until Saturday morning.

Forecast: Frequent broken mid.high cloud is in the south but mainly
scattered in the north.  Rain about the Fiordland ranges with occasional
light falls spreading east.

Soaring: Moderate blue thermals developing mainly about the ranges by
midday. THermal strengths and top of convection rising slowly to maximum
at 1600 hrs.  Weak to moderate wave marked by cloud will tend to strengthen
in the south late afternoon.
