Comment

Thankyou Dennis for letting me use your glider. And crew. And towplane.

This day appeared to have a low probability of working when we looked at the forecast. The lift bands didn't seem to be linked up properly and there was a lot of cloud on the forecast. The links between the lift bands were not a problem at all. We were able to maintain a high average speed despite jumping gaps every 50km. We never got low. The clouds were very concerning. For eleven hours we were looking at a wall of cloud coming over the Andes from Chile that threatened to engulf us at any moment. The big stacked lenticulars behind us were also threatening. Several times we had to maneuver around clouds.

Thankyou also to Brad, my copilot, who did half of the flying and to Mendoza Air Traffic Control who monitored us on the radio for the entire flight.
