Hangar doors opened, cables out and checked, glider at launch point
ready to go ---and all before 8.30am. Alan Ballard stayed over and
couldn’t sleep, so he set the field up after being bribed with a
fantastic fried breakfast.
The westerly wind early am tempted us to check out the ridges. They
certainly looked promising although the motor glider doesn’t climb
brilliantly, we will check again when the winds are around 15knots
A good soaring day, but difficult for beginners because the thermals
were chopped up with the wind. Congratulations to Will who re-soloed,
and commiserations to Alan who had another bar bill after landing out
to the north.
