High Hopes in the French Alps

Whacky Winds

Seb, after numerous attempts at top landing in dodgy windy conditions.

The flying taken a few days ago. It’s been a bit wet recently, this morning Dennis went out with Ian, where it was possible to scrape a couple of ploufs out of an early morning launch, although with all the rain we’ve been having, the conditions were all a bit bizarre! Strange winds up high, stranger winds mid level, and another contradiction on landing, so all a bit of a mess! Anyway soldiering on, a couple of flights before it all went completely beserk, was a good effort!

above launch, with some very slow forward motion

Some hang-glider pilots arrived from the south,  even though the conditions were far from perfect they managed to fly! Some people will fly in anything! Me, I like to keep a safe and healthy distance from such expressions of heroism! I’m quite happy being the observer.

The weather is the talk of the business, and at the moment it’s not looking like much is going our way until the weekend, then it’s looking ok!
