Comment

Thermalling practice. Inverted and very tough to get going despite a high tow. The northerly flow brought cool air from the north and the hills were slow to work. When they did the thermals were exceedingly narrow, over requiring a bank of 50 degrees or more to stay centered in lift. Lots of g-force made for a tiring day. Massive sink between thermals quickly evaporated the hard-earned gains. Found a nice convergence line at the end of day where the cool air from the basin in the north met the dry and warmer air mass over the desert. But by then we've had enough for the day and came back to land. Fun but challenging and not a great day for a big task - at least for us.
