Low airtime weekend

Mine and Olav’s glider finally arrived from Florida last week, with no transport damages this time. I picked them up and drove to Vågå for the national team meet. The plan was to set XC tasks and do a detailed debrief every night after flying. Unfortunately the weather was not very good for flying tasks with overcast and very unstable conditions.

On Saturday we set a short 25 km task locally, but only Nils Åge and Jon completed it. I did not know it was possible to ridge soar back through Vågåruste where Nils Åge flew and flew back into the small patches of sun instead, but I had to land at Nord Sel.

Sunday and Monday was not flyable, Tuesday was forecasted to be OK but it overdeveloped. So all in all 1 hour flying and 12 hours driving…
