Nov 15th – 13 on fire today

I learnt a few lessons from yesterday and managed to exploit the subtle dry/wet line across Namibia. It was obvious yesterday because of the line of showers that developed, today no showers but a slightly higher cloud base on one side than the other. Several hours of flying 90-100kts, stopping only when the averager was above 10kts. Stunning stuff and the best day here so far.

Managed a wapping 1119 km at 154 kph, the speed was up to 165 kph until we traded speed for kilometres at the end.

Cu to die for, how it looked around 2pm, base around 14,000′, it was 17,000′ on the dry line.
