Dartmoor Gliding News-Saturday 2nd November 2019

Today we were visited by a storm with no name. This was no trivial band of rain but overnight there had been a snarling wind with gusts to 80 mph and rain best described as monsoon like. This seemingly endless bad weather is being driven by the Jetstream which remains stubbornly overhead. Maybe it will move soon. Thankfully there was no damage at the airfield and the field drains continue to work well.

 There were only 3 members at the club today. Mike Jardine ( duty instructor ), Rick Wiles and myself. Rick was working on the simulator computer in between checking and adjusting the antifreeze in the vehicles and winches.

Hoping for better weather.
