From Espoo to Gréolierès: in Annecy

Saturday afternoon drove to Annecy, where as predicted the weather was great on Sunday afternoon. The sky was busy with tandem paragliders; later, when the thermals kicked in, joined by tens of solo paragliders. I took an early flight down to get familiar with the place and then did a good thermal flight. In the landing field heard a familiar voice: Virpi and several other Finnish hanglider pilots are here too! Just to enjoy the scenery did another flight in the evening, there were still a few thermals and a lot of buoyant air, really nice flying.
Today the weather is bad, rainy, so it seems a good day to drive further down.
