Sebastian and Mattias showed up and we got inside Sebastian's van, which has got heating. No panic, Neumagen is a place where the best flights usually are late in the afternoon. And it turned out to be the same this time around.
The winds picked up at 3 o'clock due to thermal acitivity and we could soar about 150 meters above the ridge. Now and then, we could also make 3 or 4 turns in 1 m/s thermals and gained another 150 meters. To make the flight complete, the sun came through, rewarding us with a spectular view on a white winter landscape in the distance.
Today was a lot less rewarding, although it looked promising in the morning. I had a 10 minute flight, gradually losing height. Kurt started a little later and had a nice 1,5 hour flight, be it in strong winds.
Below is a picture from this morning and a video of Kurt's take-off yesterday, still overcast as you can see:
