Comment

What a flight! Baptiste Innocent came at home for two days to discover the waves in North condition in the Pyrenees.
The forecast where very nice with strong conditions, but the Arome Model of Meteo France (which is the best model in term of accuracy by far) indicated strong humidity on East part during and at end of the day.
So we plan a Start from the Alberes (always excellent) and shuss to west. If after West of the Mont Perdu, the waves is a piece of cake, the central part of Pyrenees is always a bit tricky to find the good way, as there were not cloud, rotor to indicate anything. We managed that but the big part was to make the turn at miday over the sea at the Alberes. It was overcasted for 60km at 4000 meters and no waves anymore. After that the second run was easier, and as humidity came, some rotors showed us the way.
We broke the best distance in France in 3 points sheduled before departure 1382km and not scheduled 1412km.
We landed with 1h30 of margin,
Thanks Baptiste for everything and especially strategic decision after have turned the sea below the layer.
Stemme S12 is a top glider, what a pleasure to fly with.
Air traffic controller in France and Spain where top, very friendly, and are a critical help to achieve the records.
