Glider should turn right after release, Tow plane should turn left and descend.
Unfortunately it doesn't quite work like that in Condor. There are some rebel tow pilots out there that need to be watched!!!!
Actually this procedure varies from country to country, In north america its glider-right; tug-left. Some countries it's the opposite.....
In Denmark we turn left....
Because we are following the international rules who say:
Left turn 5 km from the airport/start line.
Then after the thermal is free, and the rules say 1 man in the thermal determine direction.
