Hot and humid

9-11-04 Two solo flights. Hot and humid - 106 in the afternoon. Both times, took a thermal up to about 6200'. Shared a thermal with a hang glider, and with a glider. Not great lift, I got a 33 minute and a 49 minute flight.

Both had very smooth, straight, short landings in the boxes. Noticed how very effective and immediate the spoilers affect the final float. Second approach was very low - sinking air all the way in. I cut it short, should have cut it even shorter. It worked out OK, but very low over the racetrack.
