Light wind and blue climbs to above 3000m
Another excellent thermal soaring day (Yesterday the airport day was also very good with reported climbs to 3300m). An Azores Hight set up with a heat low forming over Spain giving us settled weather for the early part of the week. Very light winds forcast, though probably locally breezy in Barco due to valley wind effects. A very good day for a circuit flight. Trigger temp around 26ºC with the day getting going around 1pm.
A bit of a monster thermal day. Gavin and Tony made the most of it by going to the Pass, then onto Barco and Back in Gavin’s case. I flew to the near the Pass on tandem with Peter, returning to land at the HG field nr Piedrahita. As a first day most of the others followed my example and landed near Piedrahita, it being quite a booming day and 1 and a half hours being quite an ordeal for some!
