Turn a forecast on its head, and the result would have been today’s weather. In a classic reminder to ‘never cancel a day’s flying due to the forecast’, RASP’s 900ft all day overcast inverted itself into a gin clear, showery south-westerly airflow with variable cloudbase and a teasing southerly crosswind at ground level. So, who would want to fly in those conditions? Well, anyone with the positivity to come in search of adventure at the club, of course..!
