Mistral Soaring - Rognac


Yesterday we had a good friendly winter contest in Rognac, between Aix en Provence and Marseille. I left Grenoble aroudn 7am under the snow, but quickly retrieved dry and safe roads driving south.

Temperatures were around 5 degrees on the slope and the wind was blowing between 15 and 18 m/s.
we managed 15 rounds at 7 pilots (3 timed flights in sequence for each pilot before to land). Best time in 32.23s for Aubry Gabanon and JL Foucher.

I flew the Stribog and managed some good times (33.39s for the fastest), but unfortunately I cut at almost every round on the right turn that was a trap visually, because of the shape of the cliff. I used between 1kg and 1.2kg of ballast.

Thanks to Aubry and Joël for the organisation !
