24. October 2014 - Iquique

Pimping up Alto Hospicios paraglider take off shows more and more results. Now in green colour. But today is not a day to start a big flight. Today the conditions are rather weak. Flying towards the airport I have to fight a lot, not to get grounded, especially around Los Verdes. As I circle up to nice altitude over the ridge before the usual airport turnpoint I turn around and try my luck towards the north. But reaching lands end it is about the same - very low and a fight, to stay in the air. Finally I manage to pass lands end. But north of lands end it is still weak, but additional rough and turbulent - so I am done : I turn around and land for a more relaxed rest of the day.
