17 August 2005


The wind blew from the South West the whole of yesterday, bringing clouds and unflyable conditions, but it abated during the night, and was very weak this morning. We all await the Northerly triggered by the mid day thermal activity to go and fly from Très-le-Mont.
The wind-vane anounces the expected Westerly, but there is still a high veil of clouds, so we don't expect much.
Trying to catch the glider behind me.
Alex tries to go left, towards Roches Pourries, but goes down very fast.
A good thing we didn't have high expectations, there is almost no lift, and we're on the ground pretty shortly.

Nevertheless, a short flight is better than no flight...

Technical data: Flight duration 0:20, Take-off altitude: 1350m, Maximum altitude reached: 1360m, Total climb during flight: 200m, Max rate of climb: +1.6m/s, Max descent rate: -2.8m/s, Landing altitude: 640m.
