Morning

 

Today we start our Course in Carinthian Alps. Although this part of Austria is planned to be our main location for the next week, the forecast predicts some tricky for this area days. For instance today the wind direction points to south, not an ideal constellation for Greifenburg. South ridges of Northern Italy such as Meduno area are sheltered by the mountains and provide better chance to fly in these conditions, so this is our destination for the moment.

On the take off in Meduno

The assumption was right and the wind is spot on in Meduno. Our task is to fly an approx. 50 km out and return into flatland. The first guys are taking off to pull it out:

Still in Italy... but after a flying day, which makes it worth the hassle! Now the long drive home to prepare for the next days.
