Lastra to orbit.

A great forecast with big potential but some risk of  big Cus and Cbs more to the east.  I was the first out of Lastra, and from take off I went directly to near cloud base at 3300m in a 4+m/s climb. After waiting for John, Nico and  Lucas we set off along an amazing cloud street which at that moment looked like it would give us a line direct to Segovia.  Nigel and Saied decided not to launch, but had an easier take of a little later at Pena Negra (wind came on there around 1.30 as RASP predicted).  Once in the Avila valley it was obvious that things were building to quickly along the convergence so some of us landed short of Avila, with Nico and Phil more confident of their getting down skills, landing around the city.
