Worlds Gas - update #6

At our lodging house, Heide-Camp Schlaitz Am Muldestausee, there's a lot of wind, which now and then becomes really stormy. Fortunately the balloonists are some 700 km away from here, so it won't (hopefully) complicate their landings.

At this moment there is no news of the balloons, not even at the competition center. Only from team Berben / Van Geyte we got this information:

7u40 … Already in Polen. First point at 180 km. Marker for the second task dropped at 90 m. Going to look for some speed...

9u05 … Above Pila, 350 km from Bitterfeld. We should be able to fly another 445 km…

11u06 … D-OBYN is near Kujawsko-Pomorskie (Polen), altitude of 1853 m, speed 42 km/h, direction east....

13u35 … Near Warminsko-Mazurskie (Polen), altitude 1261 m, speed 52 km/h, direction east.

...

Only one thing is certain: up to now no team is back in Bitterfeld.

To be continued!
