Comment

After often flying with Robin in separate airfcraft (he was flying the Ventus 3 “4i”) it was fun to fly together in the same glider. Unfortunately, he is leaving Namibia tomorrow.

We flew the first two legs with 3i and GO. As usual, it was blue to start, and got better when we got to the clouds in the north east. After 270 km we doubled back, and kept going to a line running north west. We found lots of sink on the nw line, though it looked good, and gave up on it well before our planned turn-point. On the other hand there was lots of lift on a line going east-west along a big storm, which we ran up and down to finish the flight.

Thanks to Michael in the Flight Office for radio weather updates! It was very useful to hear the storm to the ne wasn’t moving.
