Saturday, let's go to Puy de Manse

Last week, Marc Alain from Quebec, arrived from Paris by train with his sportube and few gliders to visit the slopes around and try the now famous slope paradise that I advertise all year long ! But again, this was without counting on the weather that decided for the last week-end of June to return to winter, at least on Saturday !!!! After looking at the weather forecast for tjhe 2 days, we decided to drive to Gap to escape low clouds and rain. Along our way to Gap the sky progressively cleared and we reach the slope to discover plenty of wind and dry weather. The day has been under the sign of the speed, given the very nice and strong conditions with 8 to15m/s during all the afternoon. I probably did 200+ F3F laps, with up to 1.4 kg of ballast in my Pike precision. Other planes were Sniper, Vampire, Ascot, Shooter, AlliajHM and a Shadow. A very nice and busy afternoon that, I think, Marc Alain enjoyed a lot!
