Soca Open - Task 1

Today we had a task in Lijak area. We were all waiting at the landing for predicted clear sky after 2pm and flying conditions.  At the end it turned out that we got the clear sky, but two hours later. We did the general briefing at 4 pm at the take off and short task with window opening at 4.40 pm.  Pilots got some thermalling, but weak ones. It was difficult today to stay in the air and fly the task. Anyway, we have some pilots doing well today and did some turnpoints of the task, so the task is valid. The points for the task will be very low. Looking forward for next days, weather forecast looks very promising! Tomorrow we have departure form the campsite at 10 am.

Other news

Friday was the day when we finally went to our home mountain here, Kobala take off place.

We had a very rainy overcasted sky in the morning yesterday but at Lijak the sky was clearing up so we went there to make a task. A short one, due to quite low cloudbase with many pilots in goal.

As the wind didn't went down early this morning we moved the pilot field to Lijak, 40 km south of Tolmin.

We start the German open in a bit chilly weather with registration in Camp Gabrje. Tomorrow looks like a nice flying day and we should be flying in the Soča valley.
