3rd task Greifenburg
92 km FAI triangle was called today with a forecast of dropping E wind. It did not happen so we had quite a ride most of the time. After the first turn point near Zeitenkopf we got back in to the lee side of the mountain which produced quite some crazy rides, however spoiled tail boy feels very good on Rs also in this conditions. You got to get some wire slaps to see what the glider is all about :) Since I did not made it over the ridge I pushed back in the valley while some made it high enough to cross the big mountain ridge. It took me quite some time to fly around Pirkeberg and get something decent enough to make turns in it. High enough to cross to the Hattelberg where strong valley wind and screaming thermals where waiting for us again. I got with the main gaggle here again so I felt quite good after flying alone for quite some time.
