First the "natural ones", particularly Fulmar which are soaring really well over cliffs :
Sadly I had not the time to fly as proposed by the people there.

Some classical place were flown : the high Sierras, the Ordessa Cañon nearby "la brèche de Roland" ...
... but also some new spots for me : the Aneto summit & its lakes.
More south, here are the "Malos de Riglos", funny stones coming out of the ground.
A very nice week indeed, good flying & nice sightseeing from my chait in the sky !

The area flown was southern french alps. I knew a bit the area, but with competition pressure I have done things I had never tried before (very low on slopes, things like that...)
It was a bit difficult for me at least at the beginning, two outlanding for starting, I choose to go to airfields soon enough...

It is quite difficult to take photographs during competition flight, as you are much occupied. Hopefully there was a few calm moment when it was possible to reach the camera.
In Vercors wave :
I ended 18th out of 23, no very glorious, people used to flying flying in mountain were for sure in a better position. Still I have flown very nice flight, I did not get too much scared by the different situation in the mountain, & I did not end up into the rocks !
So very nice experience, for my next competition I may rather try flat area though !
You can find here the competition diary.

As far as only the fuselage is concerned, a car can still enter the garage.
But when I need to work on the wing, nothing else than the bikes can fit the 7.5 length garage !
