Serres 2011 - day 13

Mixed day of weather without a good forecast having woken up to an overcast sky and light rain - as Klaus Olhmann said at briefing "perhaps you should fly where the weather is good?"
As it turned out the day improved with a mixed group of pilots, those who had already flown a lot having a rest day and the newer arrivals flying from about 14:00 to 18:00 but mostly not venturing far away today and with a forecast of good conditions tomorrow with a strong Mistral wind.
Opportunity was taken to refill oxygen and try fishing for supper. On this occasion we can confirm the tale of "the one that got away".
There was a short period when we got worried about the Chairman and the CFI after they didn't return from their short walk on Saint Genis and were late for dinner, but it may be better if they describe the tale. Suffice to say they considered it good news when they found a sign post saying the car park was only 5km away.
Likely to be an early start tomorrow???
