We hit 43 degrees yesterday and the cloudbase reached 14000 ft. It wasn't all straight forward though and some pilots were struggling big time once they got too low. Ziggy had a great 350 km run in the dry SZD-55 averaging 100 km/h.
I was running wings, then shifting cars to the landing runway and then ... got unwell. I think I'm not used to the extreme heat as yet.
I came good in the afternoon and managed to get few landing shots:

Hugh, who's flying very big planes on a daily basis and just started flying gliders, had a good one yesterday. Two days ago he flew his very first solo XC flight, then he landed out in a remote area with no phone coverage and flew his gold distance (300 km triangle) and gold height (3000 m altitude gain) yesterday. He had to ring the bell last night. Congrats Hugh!
Today the temperature is down to 20 degrees and the sky is full of grey, low stuff. It looks like a winery lunch to me :)
