Sunday 22nd August

Forecast through the week was for Saturday to be OK and Sunday rubbish. In the event no flying Saturday and the forecast on Saturday for Sunday changed its tune. Duty Instructor (Ken P) had his hands full with 2 folks on the instruction list and 4 TLs booked in. Not a great soaring day with over half of the 30 launches being basically circuits (i.e. less than 10 minutes) and with a light cross wind launch heights were nothing to get excited about. However, our fearless CFI showed what could be done by taking a run (well, more like a stroll) to Marlborough and back – most of it not much more than 1,600′ with a high point of 2,700. The LS3 was the only private glider to rig but clocked up 3:24 off 3 launches.
