And so, as the temperature began to drop in the last hour of sunlight (note for future use: micropore cloths to the ready) we returned the gliders to the hangar, happy to have completed 35 launches without hitch.
Thanks go to Barry and Heather for winch and retrieve (with Allan Holland providing Barry a welcome break), to Chris and Karon Matten (for old jokes and new Child Protection leaflets) and to Adrian Irwin for assisting around the launch point.
One thing’s for sure: after the downpour predicted for Wednesday, further wave bearing easterlies will certainly not be part of the deal for next weekend…
