West with climbs to c3000m

Briefing at 10am.  We will try to get going to PN by 10.30am.  Wind at 9.15 is cross on the hill.  Take off before 11.45 is unlikely as conditions will be poor early on,

Not a bad day with good climbs later in the afternoon to c3000m but an inversion near take off height at 12 gradually going to about 2600m. SW/NW convergence along the top of the  main ridge but migrating south of  Avila later in the afternoon.  This will make it a little harder going to get to Segovia, but today if you maintain a route such as Ron´s the other day, there is a good chance of going beyond Avila.  If you take the mountain route, much less so as you need to be N of Avila to continue beyond.  Stronger NW winds this evening but which could give us an evening flight like on Tuesday.

Some pics of Sondrey by Gunnar of Tuesdays flight below also.
