Strongish northerly winds this morning, which often mean turbulence around the take off areas which protected in the lee. An 64 km task flying south and then two cross wind legs over the north side of Talavera with goal at a large junction to the NE of Talavera. The start gate was 10km from take […]
Quite a strong north east wind, with ourselves nicely protected in the lee of the Gredos range, but with some problems on choosing the right take off to use, as both SE and W launches were crossing. We finally got off late, and after scratch climbs, things soon became easy with climbs to well formed […]
Yesterdays task was cancelled due to over-development at take off although many pilots free flew after cancellation. High pressure has finally arrived and looks set in for some time. A light northerly wind today with an early morning clear sky and a good thermal prediction has the pilots anticipating a long flight.
A great day with a straight line race to the south of 75km. After once again much discussion at take off on a possible task, the original plans were scrapped as the Spanish pilots normal route for such conditions ran through the Madrid airspace. With the help of Alan Davies and his up to date […]

Along the mountains […]
