Comment

SkySight's stippling predicted broken thermals that might be hard to work, and this was correct.
I began a 200-km triangle, in the blue, with lovely-looking clouds 20 miles north.
But after a virtual landout and return toward home, thermals improved a bit, so I flew to the clouds, where I discovered that they were highly variable, and cycling rapidly -- except for two large ripe ones that persisted far to the north.
Winds were about 300 degrees at 16->20 kt, and cloud bases variable around 5000 ft agl (when one could reach them).
So much for ambition..
My season is done unless this weekend contains a good day, because Monday it's off to El Calafate and spectating.
