High Hopes in the French Alps


Early Boomer Developing

Out earlyish this morning… thought it’d be nice to enjoy some ‘gentler’ conditions, and we did arrange to meet Tom down at Chedde to continue with some more training.

ever increasing…

He wasn’t going to be able to get out ’til around 12:30 -1.00 so we decided to have a fly before he arrives.

It was very early development today, we were watching the cloud development on the drive up, and they were already congesting much quicker than yesterday, and growing at quite a pace. We knew it was going to be a short day.  We both had some good flying, it was rough in places, and I wasn’t really in the mood to battle with the air, so decided I’d like to just have a fly down. Nope! the air had other ideas, and it was a lift, lift situation everywhere… so after a fair bit of time, and a ‘very- switchy-which-way-windsock-swirling-about-everywhere’ approach, I finally landed, Dennis wasn’t too far after me.

We decided it was just a bit too strong for Tom, the cloud bases were darkening really quickly, and on the drive home the heavens opened, with some BIG raindrops! Tom was quite happy though, and has arranged to meet Dennis early tomorrow morning.
