Segovia Goal. 115km PB for Johan

A post cold frontal day, though we all managed to bomb out after the first flight at around 12.15.  However, on the second attempt, braving the rather spicy conditions at launch, we found easier conditions.  Juansa was the first to go for the Pass, myself, Johan, Bill and Fred reluctant to commit to the end of the valley and the pass due to the rather scant thermals.  However, sometime later  Johan and myself were blasting along well to the north of Avila with Cu streeting at just over 3000m (a day with less problems to keep out of the airspace).  We arrived at Segovia around 8pm with heigh climbs and a reasonable sky which would have got us to Arcones at 150km I expect.  However, after  a little sightseeing from above we landed next to the City of Segovia.
