Comment

Took an early launch towards the plateau, however the first hour was a real struggle in the blue with max 1000 AGL. Afterwards the conditions slowly improved and after 2 hours the first clouds appeared. We flew 40km before Mafikeng - plan was to fly far to the West afterwards but in the end we decided to fly again a bit to the East after Pomfret, to more easily connect to the clouds. At the end we took a climb up to 5700 MSL which was enough for a final glide from 180km out :) Up to the next days! Day 3/12
