Light N. Base to 3800m. Good quality thermals. Bills reserve ride!
The upper level trough going across the N of Spain will have largely departed leaving us with more stability in the upper layers. Light winds (at PN at 8am very light from SE). Winds early at take off NE and more W at altitude. A good circuit flight day for Avila Valley and back or Barco direction and back. Another ¨make it up as you go along day¨, though it would be nice to cross the Pass today.
It should be a good day for all with nice conditions on the ridge and good options for XC.
Lovely day with good climbs. We stayed in the Piedrahtia side of the Pass, with best distance by Chinni who went to near the Pass, then Barco then back to Piedrahita. Bill was on the way to do the same but came to grief in a knarly climb and had to throw his reserve. A good landing and was back flying for the evening flight. Bill has been with us for 3 weeks now and is driving home tomorrow. we will miss him.
