What a nice day, although not as good as expected and difficult. Launch at 10 as the prediction was really good - however the first hour we struggled on the plateau in the blue. Afterwards the weather improved and from 200k m out clouds formed. As there was overdevelopment we turned 50km before Promfret and turned to the East towards Potchefstroom where more CB's developed. We were able to pass the CB's quite good but after a very long glide we had difficulties to connect again at the end of the day. In the end we found a good thermal of over 3.5m where we in total climbed 3000m for final glide :) Very interesting, varied and also difficult day. Looking forward to the next days ! Day 4/12
