Saturday 11th June

Classic looking day but not many members around to start the day. Pete Smith took the first launch setting off on a mission to take advantage of the liberated Lyneham airspace, returning 4 hours later mission accomplished. Meanwhile back at the ranch (er, airfield) mixed fortunes with modest launches in the cross wind meant some got away whilst others returned. Some terrific climbs (10 up reported, 6 on the averager was the best I saw) and some height eating sink. Nigel and I took JMX to 5,400′.
Few more members appeared in the afternoon – in time to watch the rain approaching, narrowly missed us but killing the lift.
