Dartmoor Gliding News-Saturday 26th June 2018

Today's forecast for winds at 12 knots from the NE teased of possible wave conditions. The wind was actually a little further to the north than that. The final approach was indeed somewhat "character forming". This, unfortunately, led to the cancellation of our visitor flying for the day but conditions were just out of limits.
The Astir CS with pilot Mike Jardine ready to try again
 The club members explored all the reachable area looking for the elusive wave to no avail. There were a couple of extended circuits from the Astir and K13 but there was no wave. With the somewhat overcast sky and the wave influence there were no thermals to be found either. Somedays are just like that.

The visibility was poor
Better luck next time.
