Epic day, on the other side of the pass

A great forecast with a SW so easy to go around the airspace.  Good Cu from early on over the back but it took a long time to get good in the Piedrahita valley, leaving most of us bombed on the first, and a good percentage on the second flight.  On the second flight we had to go from the curve take off, but it was quite turbulent with the cross wind.   Dave and Paul both went over the pass, but failed to connnect with the clouds on the other side landing just past Amavida.  Today we were a bit late as Fred and Chris´ glider took a while to arrive courtesy of BA.

Tomorrow I am sure things will go better, with a great forecast for the week still
