Saturday 13th March 2010

Today's blue sky and light NW wind promised of some good thermal activity.

Alan and Sandra took advantage of the early conditions to get some soaring training from Don and both managed soaring flights in the K13.

The private gliders launched into what looked like an improving sky and and for a while enjoyed some bouyant conditions. The Nimbus 4 flown by ex CFI Roger made a brief appearence having flown down from it's home base at Dunkeswell.

A flat grey cloud sheet then covered the area and the winds strengthened from the west. This cut off the thermal activity quite quickly. All the gliders arrived back at the airfield more or less together so for a short time the runway was full of gliders.

Everyone had plenty of flying and the day ended with tea and buscuits in the clubhouse.
