Saturday with the approach of the cold front it finally came onto Peña Negra for a bit of a windy and crossed soar. Today, Sunday, for the new group things were very nice with light to mod winds directly on the hill. Cool after the front so a late start. I flew Jorge on the […]
A big day for the brave (strongish SW, high base and convergence). We just did the evening flight. At seven thirty I soon took a climb to 3000m which gave me an easy glide back to Piedrahita loosing only about 500m on the glide (at around 65km/hr). Dave, Pavel and Winnifred did not get quite […]
Great conditions with a light NW and blue climbs to 3300m. Stejn dropped out over the other side of the pass, but myself Jakob and David grovelled along till finally getting high. Jakob had a remarkable low save. I though I was having a miraculous save at around 100m up, then saw that Jacob seemed […]
Light start once again and hardly a sniff of thermal on the morning flight. The XC flight spooked both Stijn and Maring with some wobbly thermals near the inversion at around 2600m who both decided to land. David attacked the Pass at quite a low level, spending quite some time low down in the dead […]
Perfect day and nice easy morning flight with good climbs (though not high) from around 11.30am. The XC flight only took most to the pass. A nice evening soar for all.
Slow starting day. On the second flight an easy flight to Barco for Stijn, Jakub, David and myself, with Martin makin the 2nd of two flights to la Aldeauela. Clouds near 3500m on the back mountains, but too cool in our valleys for the big climbs.
Saturday with a low base and quite deep Cu. Pete, Rob, Jon, Nick and myself went over the pass at around 2500m amongst the whisps of cloudbase. Quite easy on the other side, but the growing depth of Cumulus made us decide to land at round 30km. V. lifty evening flying on saturday, and once […]
Storm last night and high humidity during the morning. The wind came on early, but also Cu development which was deep enough to throw some showers later in the afternoon. An early flight, good for me as I reached the sunshine and was able to cruise around at cloudbase watching the others fail to connect […]
Spot of bad weather (Wed and Thurs). Fiddling about with other toys till normal service is resumed.
