Some flying

Free flying after task cancelledToo much wind and poor thermic conditions on this cold day with sunny skies. Many pilots free flew, some reporting better conditions in the valley. Bad news for the German league, as it cannot now validate a champion even if we fly tomorrow. Good luck for Oliver Rossell, who remains German Champion from last year (without even coming here).

    20 degrees C in the valley, though yesterday at take off you needed a few fleeces to keep warm. Better today and tomorrow. 22 C expected Sunday and Monday.
