Egg carrying glider
 
I need to design a glider that will have the best possible glide ratio, be able to carry a 70g egg and have a wingspan not exceeding 60cm.

I was planning on using a clark y aerofoil, is this a good choice? or is there better.
What king of chord length should I have for such a glider?
Should I use one lower aspect ratio wing or two higher aspect ratio wings (in a tandem wing arrangement)?

Thank you very much
