Some very strong climbs

The days forecast was lght winds and stability above take off height.  However, during the XC flight we found plenty of climbs over 6m/s probably reaching 3000m.  Simon left and myself left one before 2800 as it was getting very rowdy.   There were wave bars set up over the Gredos, but the valley winds remained light, though above 2400 the wind was around 25km/hr.

Jan and Chris both made good morning flights and I made the strong thermic flight with Chris.

Catherine test flew the Sport 4, and after getting her highest altitude is now reluctant to let Pedro have it back.

An exceptional evening flight with abundant smooth lift.  All landings were made well after sunset.
