What a day at Porta!
After an early morning drive, at 10:45 I was ready to take off. An aborted tow due to heavy turbulence, and 20 minutes later I give it another try.
Local showers made the day more difficult as we had to wait on the ridge for them to pass. Good fun flying with Robin (RSM), and really nice that I finally managed to make the jump towards Ith and back. During the last run wind became very strong (80-90 km/h), showers were more often and bigger and I was caught in between them. I managed to get away to make the jump towards Porta, but not with enough height, and I outlanded in the gap. Very turbulent, and demanding weather.
Dankjewel Karin, Robin, Marissa, en Jeroen voor ophalen!
Danke schön Porta Westfalica mitglieder für die gastfreundschaft.
