Dartmoor Gliding News-Sunday 30th June 2019

Ed Borlase’s view westward over Discus V5 gives a feel for the day.
A light north-westerly with some promise in the afternoon was the forecast on RASP; and so it turned out to be.

The two Petes: Visitor Pete Barnes is ready to fly with Instructor Peter Howarth.
Our visitors were Steve Morris, who flew with recently qualified BI Rich Roberts, Tracey Leaper who flew with Peter Howarth, Graham Simmons and Roger Croot who flew with Martin Cropper, and finally the two Petes: Pete Barnes and Pete Howarth, who flew for almost 15 mins to claim two-seat flight of the day. That honour for single seat flying went to Rich Roberts, in his Discus, who claimed 35 mins. Single seat flight of the day went to Ed Borlase who, at 36 mins, sneaked in a minute more than Rich Roberts in his Discus.
