West, a bit stable early on- 3 over and Nigel 42km out then back-

We are still under the influence and protection of the atlantic high with  a ridge at higher levels giving reasonable flying conditions.  today it should be hotter, and although there is a marked inversion early on around 2600m, later in the day we should go to 3000m plus with blue thermals.

Wind in the west, so a flight towards Segovia, though we are likely to find N winds low down towards Avila.   Avila goal would be a good flight today.

What Happened.

Nigel, David, Nige P  and myself over the Pass with all the others succuming

short of the pass  in the quite difficult light conditions early on.  Nigle best who battled the N to 42km then back to the Pass and although  tired multiple attempts could not return.  About 5.5 hrs in the air though!

Nige Priors battle to get back over the Pass
