Clear blue shy and sun when I left Newbury – complete cloud cover by the time I got to Rivar. Could base started to lift and occasional glimses of that yellow ball in the sky. Paul Prentice set the standard with 8 minutes which nobody managed to match until I took JMX just to keep the place tidy. I stumbled into the day’s thermal (well, a more of a mini street) and was rewarded with 29 minutes. Colin was doing his best to keep the average flight time low (the lure of the yellow knob). With just 8 of us flying today no shortage on the donut front (thanks Peter M).
