A heat low which has formed in Southern Spain bringing a little more instability in medium and upper levels. Increasing temperatures (28ºC Piedrahita) with decent thermal climbs. The diagram shows the thermal index along the track Plasencia/Segovia. Probably best XC direction would be towards Guijuelo to the NW. Light SE so we expect P.Negra to […]
We continue with high pressure and light winds. Some instability in altitude, though storms not expected, though we may see some OD in hot spots. Light S winds. S wind at Peña Negra. Cirrus may give rise to a late thermal start. a at 9.30 am We shall go up at 12.00 Conditions a liitle […]
The light instability at altitude brought us some storms around 6pm yesterday. This will not bre a problem today with a mainly blue thermal day and possibly some small Cu around 3200 in the mountains. Light winds, probaby N in the valley and SW in altitude. Possibly a circuit task or the Avila direction. Light […]
A ridge of high pressure to the W will bring light winds and good soaring conditions for the next few days. Today light SW to W (NW on mountain) should give us a good oportunity for a flight to Avila. Base around 2500, rising to over 3000m in some areas. The wind at take off […]
Looks like an easy week for flying with generally light winds and good thermal conditions. Today the thermal quality should be particularly good with thermal tops around 2900m.
Too windy yesterday, but now a stretch of very pleasant conditions await. Only a few of us around next week, this last week of May being one of the only weeks when we are not fully booked for the rest of the season. Just finishing off the last bits of DIY repairs on the guest […]
Light winds and good thermals to near 3000m. Hopefully we will have a good day today. Paul Russell has just arrived and along with Bryan Hindle we will give it a go. No retrieve as I am taking Jorge our driver on the tandem to try an XC on the new Magnum 2. Further tracker […]
Looking good for a while ahead. To much to be done on the ground though untill Thursday.
No chance today or decent flying — nor probably even a fly down
Strong thermic conditions at mid day after short morning flight. Only Alberto and Luis near towards the Pass. The evening flight in restitution gave 4 personal bests with with landings around Villafranca and Casas del Puerto. Our low airtime coastal ridge soaring group were very happy.
