National record approved

My 71 km flight June 12th, including a 56 km declared goal, is now approved as a new national record for speed over 50 km. I actually did not realise that this was a possible record while flying, and it was only while taken the bus back to Vågå that I realised that it could be a record. So it was pure luck that I meet the requirements of less than 1000 metres of altitude loss. It turned out that I only had 18 metres excess altitude when I took the last TP.
