How to fly in hills

Posted 6 years, 8 months ago    1 comment

Yes, today we flew into the hills. I won't say mountains, as there are some big mountains nearby where they ski and everything, however today was just into the hills.

I really enjoyed today, great scenery, not as much sink around (for me at least), and had other people to fly with. Unfortunately we were still too slow, and only achieved 99km/h compared to the day winner of 114km/h.

My points: 735 Total: 4495
Ian McCallum: 785 Total: 4901

Now 406 points difference.

Looking at the forecast, Friday was 90% chance of rain, down to 60%, so people are thinking we may fly now. Which is good, so we have 2 days to catch up 406 points.

Goodness, valleys? Water? Hills? Trees? All we need now are some cumulus...
