May 27th – Muchamiel to Tarragona

A rather cloudy day with low base meant a change of plan from routing direct to the Pyrenees to following the coast. Initially routed East towards Benidorm where there were enough gaps to climb to 7000′ and head over the mountains direct to Valencia. Then an area of 8/8ths meant a descent below cloud where we could maintain 1500′-2000′. This continued all the way to Tarragona where we landed. The location would allow us to route East around the Pyrenees if the cloud persisted.
