Very nice day! The forecast was that cumulus clouds would develop around 11.30, so I went for an aero tow at 11.15. First waypoint was Young (250km to NE) but the first 2,5h were very hard with blue thermals mostly not higher than 1000 -1200 AGL and often I was quite low. Around 14.00 the first nice Cu developed and I decided to head further NE to Orange. After three hours of flying I still had not more flown than 250km, but flying with the clouds towards Orange went better. I finally turned around 15.15 at the goldmine of Orange (365km out). Afterwards I started to head NW in the direction of Cobar, with still nice Cu which where around 8000 – 9000ft. Question I asked myself was when to turn again and fly home. I finally decided not to turn to early so I turned at 17.15, still 395km North of Corowa. The way back went really well until the last 150km where thick overcast came in. Finally I climbed 500m in a very weak thermal to reach final glide and flew home with Mc at 0. Landed at sunset, great day!!
