Dartmoor Gliding News-Saturday 16th July 2016

The forecast gave a cloudy start gradually giving way to sunny periods with a 6 knot SW breeze and a 20% chance of rain. What we actually got was cloud nearly all day, no rain and the 6 knot breeze was from the west.

We made the best of this training day with Rick Wiles flying our One Day Course candidate Mathew Shaw while I flew our Air Experience visitors Mathew Hut and Ifan Kaidain and Ged looked after the club training.

 It never really became soarable but there were a couple of extended flights between 11 and 13 minutes. Later in the afternoon a convergence approached the airfield from the south but it never got within gliding range.

The convergence was just out of gliding range

A  good training day.
