Cool postfrontal flow

Saturday turned up to be a classic day with very nice cumulus clouds everywhere and strong climbs in the Ambles valley. The Spanish league had a task to Villacastín.

On sunday a weak cold front pushed the winds too high to fly for the new arrivals. Monday was a nice day although very low thermal tops but Kathryn still managed to get to Barco and break the camera, radio and mobile phone in the process so she was unable to communicate with us and took a while to find her.

Tuesday was an improvement in thermal quality which for some turned out to be a bit too rough whereas Nigel, Simone and Howard had a lovely valley flight. Good evening conditions, with Bill and Liz getting a good 600m above take off.
