What a bizar day again ! We did not anticipate clouds that early, so in the end we took off too late (10.30). First Cu was directly 4m and we headed to the NE to follow some small Cu clouds. After 125km we turned and flew to Douglas again, whereafter we flew North of Tshabong into Botswana (420km out). Great climbs (max today 8.8m :)) and flying along the thunderstorms with good long glides. Pity that at the end of the day it was totally stable towards Douglas otherwise even more was possible. What a week, 3 x 1100+ and today 1200+. Up to the next days :)! Hans what a great flight we made and what a great holiday! Day 5/12
