Saturday 6th March

Despite a promising forecast Saturday dawned drab and overcast. But thanks to Chris and others setting up early we were ready to launch as soon as cloud base started to rise by mid morning with some good launches and weak winter thermals to be had.

A good day for training with Steve B getting his annual checks out of the way and new member Jim M making the most of the quiet day to get in 5 training flights with rapid progress.
Essential maintenance was also completed on the skybrid winch at the end of the day and an expedition to recover some rare spares for a vintage Oly restoration project was seen to return all smiles. So despite the slow start a very successful day all round.
