Mediocre blue day. Moderate heights today, spending most of the flight below 14k but I did get over 16k once. Thermals were somewhat hard to center and ranged from 2.5 to 5+ knots. Thermals seemed to have multiple, short lived cores and I used plenty of "stepping stone" thermals. Spent way too much time circling at 32%, but than again it was blue. I ended up doing an Air Sailing-Bridgeport-Mina-Air Sailing oblong (non FAI) triangle, so I should get some triangle points. First leg was pretty uneventful and got gradually better the further south you went. The Bridgeport-Mina leg was a roller coaster of intense sink and intense lift. Especially after rounding Bridgeport I hit several minutes of intense sink I couldn't shake and started deviating north towards Hilton Ranch just in case, but it didn't come to that or even close fortunately. A bit further south I could see cu and the fire S of Mono Lake and it's smoke blowing NE for quite a distance fouling the visibility all the way to Mina and then some. Final leg had lots of sustained weak lift flattening my glides which was nice. Winds switched around a bit to be more northerly towards the end so my quartering tailwind became a bit of a headwind but wasn't too bad. Not the best, but not a half bad flight on a day where the blue will due!
