Conditions & Weather
Nov / Dec : By late November, the wind speeds are usually between 25-30 kmph. In December, the wind speeds are usually between 20-25 kmph.
Flying starts early, at around 7am in the morning. We takeoff in smooth laminar conditions, even though the wind may be strong. This allows us a safe window to launch and we then soar and thermal locally, waiting for the cloudbase to rise. Once the base rises, typically around 9am, we go on our first XC glide downwind.
Strongest hours of the day are between 12pm to 4pm, where thermals are strong and so is the potential to be caught out by thermic gusts while landing.
