Report from Annecy, France

 

A long wait at T.O. with lots of SIV Pilots and Tandems. Essential to time it right or it became a sled ride for some.

Managed to core a good thermal to 1900 Mts but usual melee of when you start going up others join in a non uniform fashion. Good crossing the Lake and a cruise before landing.

Report from Annecy, France

  

Rocking Robin landing at Le Grand Bournand and others at Doussard


  

Lots of airtime today despite some gnarly thermals. Robin and James going over the back, very brave. Some doing mini Tour de Lac for first and some for second and third time. Some stonking clouds and climbs.

Report Hive - Charmouth - Cogden Beach

 

This Jurassic Coast Run seemed to work well over the last week. It was an easy launch in reasonable conditions and a great adventure en route. Robin getting good height and I had to have 2 attempts to get round and up at Golden Cap. Crossing the river at Charmouth with Robin taking his chance on getting as close to Lyme Regis as possible and coming back low, only to gain good height again. After 2 hours it was a return journey to Cogden Beach with Robin geeking out the extra km by cruising back towards the main road hoping to get some more lift. Then a celebratory high 5.
