    Soaring Monday 7/15/2019

    A strong thermal day with good lift in the blue to start at TreeFrm then CU bases 11/12K from St. John north on the way to 5 miles short of T15. I (JM LS4) launched at 1247 PDT and Pat Alford (ASG29-18) launched about 10 minutes later and passed me near Black Butte but let me catch up at Yolla Peak. Very inspiring to catch sight of the beautiful ASG29-18 passing close by! Bruce Roberts BR and Ed Sakeld 5S followed and also had good flights. There was a line of Lenticulars from Mt. Shasta to Williams…wow. On the way south the CU were over the eastern edge of the Mendocino mountains, so we (Pat and I) headed into the blue near M6 to stay over the high ground. No good thermals until about 5 miles east of SIron where Pat found a good climb under a nice CU. I followed and also got a nice climb. A very nice soaring day when I can get to T15 (almost) and mostly stay above 10K MSL.

    Here are a couple of photographs showing the CU and the Lenticular clouds.
