Sunday morning, however, dawned damp with low cloud, well below Fiesch take off. So instead we headed up and over the Furka pass. Up in the high mountains cloud base was higher and with almost nil wind on the pass I took off on the east side. Although it was early conditions were surprisingly good and a short but very technical flight got me to just a couple of kilometres short of the top of the Oberalp pass. A quick lunch and I tried the same trick heading towards Chur but with a low base and strong valley wind I was soon defeated, so we gave up and headed for the Dachstein in Austria.
Now we are in the race HQ at Fuschl, ready to start some of the admin work tomorrow morning when the race office opens.
