Speed OLC — new in 2014

If you're wondering where you stand with this automated, low-friction competition, visit the results page. We're announcing the top three each day and there's a bottle of something smooth for the top pilot in each of the wet (Open/18m and Standard/15m) and dry (Club) categories.  It's based on the fastest 2.5 hours of your flight, points are calculated by the OLC server and a (differently handicapped from the HW comp) speed is given. The pilot with the top points (not speed) is awarded a prize each day. 

Preliminary (unofficial) Day 4 results are here.  Make sure you put your flight up on OLC after you submit to the HW contest site. Then leave the rest to us.  We'll base the results on whatever has been lodged by about 0830 the following morning.
