Tuesday 12th April

With the forecast for a wet Wednesday and a cracking Tuesday, Wednesday was moved forward a day. Bit of a slow start with a modest turnout but more people appeared as the day progressed (15 folks flew a some point during the day – including a vsitor from Parham who dropped in). The wind sock said NW but the wind felt N (i.e. blooming cold). Only one private glider rigged (the LS3) which Colin flew for 1:40. On his return I just had an hour before I needed to be back. So, found my first thermal and took it to cloud base (5,400) then followed the cloud street which took me almost to Swindon. Ran back along it to Andover then back to Great Bedwyn all without stoping to thermal after that first climb. Our new FLARM/logger was put to good use (logger side at least) with 3 silver heights achieved. Highest average flight time in 2011 was achieved
