Another nice day with a mix of ridge and thermals.
From the very beginning I knew this would be a marginal day with the too westerly wind. I thought I would give it a try anyway.
First leg towards Hullhorst, it wasn't super, but marginally the ridge was still working. On the way back at the Denkmal I took a thermal and decided to stay high. At Schaumburg I connected to the ridge again, and waited a bit to be able to connect to another thermal. It wasn't going up but I was not going down either. After a little bit of waiting it was clear that I had to move further, no thermals seem to develop in the area. A little bit more East, got a nice thermal all the way to cloud base and I was able to make the jump towards Ith. The wind was nicely oriented on this ridge, so decided to stay here for a little while. After two slow legs at Ith (I had to try Wave) I decided to get high again and fly towards Porta before the thermals would stop working. In fact, I made it back just in time. The cherry on the top was a very good climb South of Buckeburg - 4.0 average. At this point the wind rotated so much to the west that it was not possible to fly ridge anymore.
Thanks Porta Westfalica for launching me again.
