Serres 2011 - day 12

The thunderstorms came last night with heavy rain and lightning (and car alarms) to disturb the nights sleep. The aftermath was a day that dawned with significant cloud cover and still raining.
The briefing was optimistic (as ever) about possibilities later in the day and sure enough the air cleared and temperatures rose along with a southerly air flow to enable launching to commence at 16:00 local to Aspres about 9km to the north.
Flying continued until 20:00 local in ridge, thermal and wave to 11,000 ft.
