Comment

Started ar Reims Prunay with Mark for the second day of the France safari. At Reims locally above the hills a good climb towards 2000 MSL but afterwards towards Nogent it was a real struggle with simply very weak to no thermals and really low. From Tours the conditions improved and we flew towards Le Mans. Goal was Falaise but when I needed the engine to make the last 25km - the engine appeared not to come out. I tried some oscilating flights paraboles in the hope the engine would get out but unsuccessfully. At 250m AGL I decided to focus on a safe landing - which suceeded in a big farmland. In the end Frans Guise was able and willing to pick me up and with all the help of local people of Falaise gliding club (Olivier, Pierre and many others) ho made it possible to be back home again after 1,5 day! Great experience and thanks all for the massive support. Frans I owe you lots of beer! Thanks mate !! And above all a good learning experience. Mark thanks for the trip, soon to be continued.
