Excellent Easter weather.

We have started our season off well with an excellent run of weather.  Since last Thursday we have been flying with our guests and have managed plenty of flying so far.  Highlights have beenb a flight to Barco on Sunday by Paul, Sarah and Pete.  On tuesday Pete and myself made the first crossing of the pass.  Avila was in the bag with a good cloud street from Muñogalindo onwards, unfortunately Pete landed at the foot of this during a phase when Cirrus shadowed up the valley.  Today a light easterly and another treck towards Barco, though most falling down at the half way stage.

The tops of the high mountains are snow capped at the moment, and with the crystal clear visibility makes for very scenic flying.

    Is that (Pedro) Pete.
    Just back from Combe Gibet where I managed to take off (third attempt) and flew for all off “phoo” 2 minutes 4.3 down with a geat hight of at least 10ft.
    I would not mind but even red ribbons could stay up.
    I need a new glider, one that floats, goes up.
    I might go again tomorrow for some more punishment.
    See you in June with Liz and Bill.
    oops, I have not told you my new plan.

    Glad every one is having a great week and the blogs have started again.
