Very jealous of your Algo trip Richard!! One of my favourite ever places, Fly all day with vultures then get drunk at JJ's. I've been over 3 times and never been dissapointed.

Hi Dan, It was quite rough some of the days, with the westerly Atlantic sea breeze hitting the prevailing SE winds quite early at about midday. The convergence was violent at times and I had the wing below me a couple of times. Weightlessness was also experienced twice. Wing recovered impeccably though, (worth sticking to an EN class C !!!). Prior to this time, if you could head off over east of the twin peaks (Olvera), you got quite a good flight in. 98km on one day for our group. Ronda was tricky to get to, as a result. Landed after one flight 5 seconds before a dusty arrived! No rain for 5 months over there, may have had something to do with the conditions! Evening flights reminded me of soaring the Malverns. 42 degrees C in Seville.....
