Cycling again, Saturday 2nd July

We were still in the same air as Wednesday, and so we got the same sort of conditions. (Although we weren’t flying Thursday and Friday, they seemed to be a repeat of Wednesday too). Of course, it wasn’t exactly the same; today we had a good flight to start the day, then dead for a few hours, but this time the early afternoon flights were reporting good soaring under the spreadout, before it died again. We thought we’d finished at about 5pm, but then a visitor asked for an extra flight, and Jim decided to use the left-over cable rather than just wind it in. Just then a bit of blue sky obligingly let the sun shine on the airfield and they got away for a half-hour, until guilt at keeping the ground-crew waiting made them land.
