|Early Morning clear skies over the tors|
With Pete Howarth on hand as Instructor, today was a great opportunity for those who had fallen out of currency, namely Colin Boyd, Joe Nobbs and myself, to get back in the saddle and really get to grips with launch failure eventualities in conditions which, with almost no wind, were quite challenging. Thanks, Peter.

PS. Trivia fact of the day: did you know that, at 1.2km long, our runway is just 100 metres short of North Hill's..? And that with access to the top field, the tables are turned...
