Mar 24 – Weak thermals


Lovely start to the day as the picture shows. Not a great forecast though, light westerlies and weak thermals. Longest flight done by Mark and Robin in the Arcus, maxed at 7500′ and a very occasional 2kt thermal. Flew to Seu D’Urgell under increasing top cover. An engine start was required to make the return trip.


The aircraft carrier like airfield at Seu D’Urgell, a great landout option, but mainly devoid of actual aircraft!
