Comment

Fun short jaunt of a flight. Launched really late (about 14:45) after launching earlier (13:25) and finding nothing but sink for a pitiful 10 minute flight. Launched into mostly blue/sparse cu conditions with a noticeable 15 knot northerly wind. There was a very dense cu field (but without much vertical development) further to the NE and the conditions were so so and not terribly high until I reached it. It got a bit better once connecting with the clouds but they started slightly stratifying into a broken layer although they still had usable lift underneath. I ended up rounding Las Vegas a bit past 16:15. With a tailwind and at this point plenty high I had a nice run until crossing I-40. At that point there was mild virga about 20 miles E of Estancia. I rode the outflow just to the W of that under a cloud shelf that was hit and miss. I was hoping to make Gallinas Peak as my final turnpoint but turned early at Progresso instead as the outflow lift was becoming less reliable and hitting plenty of sink plus I had a good headwind coming back into Moriarty. Not the finest flight, but it was worth taking a second tow.
