Annecy Trip

Stonking first two days, followed by some rather large storms...


I got a great flight around the lake on Thursday,I managing two petit tours in succession, and was about to go for my fifth lake crossing when a few lightning strikes drew my attention to the developing storm I should have noticed much earlier! I was wondering how I had managed to get over the middle of the lake at 2600 metres! I was over Plein fait at the time, so I quickly spiralled down to the landing field and packed up. I then thumbed a lift back to the Doussard landing field to pick up the car.

I might even venture out of the valley later this week if the opportunity arises. I have been taking it easy for the first two days since it is exactly a year since I last flew free-flight.

Andy Brazier managed a nice little 76 km flight out of the valley before landing near Lidl supermarket, he managed to thumb a lift back to Irwyn's place. This was Andy's longest flight to date.

Jason pootled about for a bit and landed early after noticing the rather ominous clouds forming in the distance. When I got back he was relaxing in the hammock after landing in the field behind Maison du Moulin.

Jason showing off his SATs on the first day of the trip.



Andy Brazier sets up at Col de la Forclaz launch - funny guy!

No flying today, so we head to the lake (28th July). We found a tree that you could dive from.



Great food served at our B & B - Maison du Moulin.
