Today bernd told me to fly a declared FAI 1000. For that I had to fly alone, so I negotiated with Joris, raised his zakgeld...(in his dreams), promised him everything he needed (but already has) and ...finally he agreed. It was supposed to be a nice day. the same as yesterday, but better. Bernd briefed on a conversion line, looking like a sausage and causing a lot of shadow in the evening as the sun gets lower. Further incoming cold airmass from the sea, disturbing the thermals on the west side. Anyway, First to the northeast to warm up low and sweaty, then all the way to the west hoping that thermals would have organized in conversion, and then the highway down. By then the cold air would be messy and to come back straight to Veronica if needed. I flew together with Milosch, a Tsjechian guy, who flew in a shark. Co flying went nicely and fast. Everything ok until the clouds stopped 120km before the last turning point. Max altitude, and start gliding hoping for something. That something took 3000m to happen. Exactly as briefed the cold air from the sea blocked everything, and a lot of turbulence, but netto 0.5m/s. So take a bit and move on. ETA for Veronica was 21:00, so hopefully the clouds would make up for that. So they did. Once cloud base was reached again, the rest was ok. 8 gliders landing at sunset was interesting. shower, good meal, beer and sleep. good night all.
