Overhead Montlucon

This fligh sure is special so far. Although we didn’t really believe what the race officials said about the westher – they were right. The right decission to have the launch. We spend a very instable night, where we went through a lot of ballast.
Then in the morning the schock moment. Our parachute wouldn’t open. It was iced. When I finally ripped it open a whisteling noise staid, telling us, the we have a leak. So we went immediately into landing procedure. But when flying low in warmer air the noice disappeared. So most likely a chunk of ice caused the problem.
After that we ballasted to come above the clouds again and in order to have a better direction.
Now we are cruising in midd France flying towards the southwest.
