Comment

the weather started a bit later and softer than we thought
We wanted to fly a 1000k out and return for a US open class Motorglider multiplace record and have a 3 turn point as well .
After a slow start tip toeing we found the wave improving as we went north with a 11m/s climb close to the turpoint running south was a "pedal to the metal" and closed the 1000 in 4h41min.
After that we ran to our next turnpoint but we could not pass up the Esquiel wave for an extra fun in a classic boomer final glide .
Jean Marie Clement showed his expertise, talent and profound knowledge of Patagonia. Thanks to the whole group for exposing me to such extraordinary flying
