Busy weekend and Brazilian thermalling

This weekend is going to start with one or more tandem flights on friday evening. Followed by a party in Gent and then on saturday and sunday I will participate in the Dutch Flatlands competition. You will surely be able to follow it on the site of the Dutch federation. So the weekend will be busy.
Yesterday I found a very nice video by Erick Vils, a Brazilian hangie, which really nicely shows the fight for position in a thermalling gaggle. It is an aerial battle/dance. You want to get up there first but you have to respect the others for everyone's safety. I love being in this partially synchronized, rapidly changing environment, so I thought I'd share it with you...
