Ager Day 3: Cancelled due to Levante

When we arrived on Montsec today, the southeasterly wind kept picking up. A task of 130 km was set, but the Spanish local pilots warned me of dangerous take off conditions and very rough air that would not take us up very high. Not too inviting.
Joerg is on the safety committee so I told him about the opinion of the locals and he managed to stop the first comp pilot from trying to take off. Soon enough the wind picked up even more, Jörg measured up to 48 km/h, the maximum to fly a task here is 37 km/h. At 3pm, the day was cancelled. Driving down, we saw amazing lenticular ufos everywhere and were glad to have stayed safe and sound on the ground!
