However, probably lower unless we get to 30ºC. Maybe uncomfortably windy. Briefing at the House around 11.45am What Happened A great day for some. Brilliant for Alex, Emilio and Yvan who finally got down the Cherry Tree valley.
Today blue thermals so we do not have the threat of yesterday. this could be the day to carry on down the cherry tree valley What Happened Nice conditions but the base was no more than 2600 when we got to Barco, and with a 20km wind by then we decided to land for […]
High pressure once again (also looking epic in the UK, and well done Helen Gant on her 200km yesterday!) and looking very favourable for nice XC soaring conditions. (Also shaping up very well for next week for Mike Thomas, Nigel Page et al). Easterly flow which may make yesterdays task difficult and from the Cherry […]
A blue thermal day but with conditions perhaps being good from earlier with climes to around 3400m or more. Light winds, probably NW in our valley, and NE in the Avila Valley and NE near Barco. Not an open distance day for sure but a very high quality paragliding day for circuit flights. […]
Briefing in the House at 11-15am. We are dominated by high pressure and have light E to NE winds low down and NW above the convective boundary. We should go better than yesterday with maybe the of avoiding the Cherry Tree valley by going more NW. It will be a late start once […]
What Happened A really nice day with little wind and gentle thermals to 2700. Plenty of Barco trips and a few onto the Tornavacas Pass. Nice evening flying. I finally got in the air this evening , feeling a bit better after quite a few days now suffering from some bug which […]
Influence of high press with a cold front far to the NW of the Peninsula. It should be a reasonable day but for the inversion around 2600m. Probably best to do a circuit of the Valley or flight to Barco. Flying to Avila maybe tricky due to the north wind. However, we must see […]
A weak cold front went through in the early hours. Early on in the afternoon there maybe some congestus development in the mountains or convergence areas but this will reduce throughout the day as a marked inversion develops around 2600m. Once again quite a cool day which may give near 3000m in hot spots and […]
Yesterday we managed an evening flight and Andy a bit of a breezy soar mid afternoon. Today finally decent conditions forecast with a good chance of a flight to Avila. What Happened: A nice day but never getting hot enough for the 3000m climb. Alan went over the Pass twice and Beart (Swiss) made […]
Ugg. Wind is fine if we could see the hill through the rain!
