A very good quality day with Hari and I turning back at the Pass ( a little N on other side) and returning to Piedrahita. Steve went over and was one climb short of Avila at Niharra. Ian made his 2nd modest XC to the quarry and back to past the long Bar. Mari did […]
Another nice Autumnal day, not dissimilar to the previous days , but with very light winds from the west. Rasp showing good convergence from Avila to the NE once again. Likely climbs perhaps a little lower that the last two days, but still an excellent day.
Continuing excellent conditions this week and further progress for Ian with climbs above 2500m for him and his first modest XC to near the Pass. A great looking day…but for me, Steve, a quick trip to the bomb out field at the Windmill! Nice evening conditions and plenty of flying for all.
Similar to yesterday with high quality climbs and potentially the wind better for the evening flight..more NW. Initialy more SW at PN, so we must ensure it comes on there or else must go to Lastra.
For a near autumnal day yesterday gave us climbs equal and better to July. Hari and I went ingot he Avila valley, Harri landing at La Torre after finding a climb to 3000m at the Pass. After a low save at Blatcha I went to 3300m and left the climb to land with Hari. However, […]
A good looking day for XC with a little more wind that the last days and a SW flow. Good convergence in the Avila Valley and towards Segovia. An inversion around 2800m but likely climbs to 3000m in the mountains and convergence.
A super day for Mari with some high thermal climbs to near 2600m and a successful trip to near the Pass then back to Villafranca 1st junction. Also 4 flights for Ian with a few more hours for his log book and first high thermalling. Great conditions for low airtime’s these last days!
Similar to yesterday but with better thermic conditions and higher climbs, the inversion being higher. Some cirrus may calm things, but in general an excellent day. NW on the mountain, though N in the Avila valley, so probably best to do circuits within the Piedrahita and Barco valleys.
A pleasant day yesterday conforming to the forecast. 3 flights and an XC to Barco for many of the group and easy evening conditions
We should have a pleasant soaring day with the winds on the hill, though climbs not much more that 2500m. Not dissimilar to the previous days, though with more sunshine so better climb rates.
