PB for James at 141.7km and Tony at 139.3km and Noel 77.4km
Heat Low still predominates with high pressure above. However, the trough to the NW of Spain will start to enter. This will give us some cirrus cover as the afternoon progresses which may calm things and finish the thermal day a little earlier. In general another excellent XC day. The winds will end up at the end of the day SW, so a push towards the NE for open distance could be on, or another circuit.
Fantastic conditions, but the sky filling in with spread out rapidly from the West. Tony, Bryan, James, Noel and myself kept ahead and spend the day turning little and racing along fantastic cloud streets which enabled us to get a good distance with what was for much of the day a quatering headwind from the NE, though W to NW at some levels. Nigel was a little behind and not able to race quite so much but made nearly 100km as well. The others got stuck in the murk and had another flight but just boating around the Piedrahita valley.
A really classic day with all the best ingredients for XC paragliding. light winds, perfect Cumulus, strong climbs and a great retrieve from Jorge.
