At about 11:30 things looked brighter, so I decided to take a launch to do a weather check. Unfortunately I reached cloud base at 600ft, so abandoned the launch and was soon back on the ground where we decided to wait again for things to improve. While we waited ML1 was started to make sure it is ready to run if required.
|ML1 fired up.|
|Downwind past Brentor.|
At about 12 o’clock I took another launch. Things were a little better, so after explaining to the small team that only quick circuits could be achieved, those that wanted to do so flew. First to fly was Ed Borlase, soon followed by Steve Fletcher who had joined us.

|A full launch gave us this view.|

Even though we had a small team, Ed found time to visit the winch and start his training to become another winch driver.
