What a weather (Nationals, 6th day)

Very interesting day. Today we had a typical task to the north...but with one ingredient...Cumulu Nimbus.
As you can see the picture below after the tows, a huge Cb was showing us the power that it has. In less than 30 minutes, the top was covering the sky, bringing shadow and of course killing the thermals. That is true until you find yourself thermaling a 5 m/s average thermal in a dark scenary close to the rain and ice.

This was a real class to what a Cb can do and how you can take advantage of it.

Alex Nielles (Spain) showed us how to fly this conditions, obtaining a great 1st place. Congratulations!!!

Yesterday, Cb started to show up!
