High Hopes in the French Alps

Fiona Beats Herself!!

Woke up to the forecast grey skies. Wasn’t sure what was going on with the Cat A competition scheduled for Plaine Joux today, but we weren’t going to rush up. We kept having the odd peek over to launch but only saw regular gliders floating around at various times. By early afternoon we discovered that the Competition had been cancelled. It was forecast to possibly storm later and the weather is set to deteriorate further tomorrow.

No flying this weekend then.

Mind you yesterday was a great day for Fiona Macaskill, she had an attempt at breaking her own 25k speed triangle here and it seems she did it by beating her previous record by four minutes! Well done Fiona!!! good for you. Now I’ve got your co-ordinates might have a go myself some time… 🙂
