Would disagree..in this case it was about heading into wind or away from the ridge with level wings in a trimmed glider. That sort of cloud is rarely turbulent or very wet..done that in both gliders and more difficult paragliders whose performance is affected by moisture and do not have the speed range. Have just bought an xc tracer maxx that not only has heading info but accelerometers giving wind, flarm, ground speed and position and can be tracked. Nothing like buying a bit of extra safety.
