Vågå weekend again – report Saturday

The forecast for Vågå this weekend looked very good and as reports of +3700 masl came in Friday afternoon I was had big expectations for Saturday. We expected late conditions and conditions were slow as we arrived at the launch at 1130, but then the conditions never improved before it started to overdevelop. From 1300 we had rain showers and crosswind. At about 1445 we had a window where it was possible to launch and fly. I managed to stay up about 20 minutes in marginal conditions, but soon after I landed the wind picked up and it started to lift all over the place. Still, most chose to land as it was lots of rain around and it overdeveloped. So, all in all not the day we expected and hoped for. And now the forecast for Sunday looks quite bad with strong W winds.
