Wind straight up the strip but cloud cover (not as forecast) meant starting off the day not being able to take a full launch. Small stirrings of excitment when Rod H managed to get a double digit duration flight (11 minutes). 10 launches and almost 2 hours later before anyone else achived this – Carol P + guest clocked up 31 minutes. The guest was Dave Owen who made a welcome visit after many years of living aboroad. The cloud cover did break-up and the sky started to look reasonable but the lift proved elusive. I had a couple of 22 minute flights from the back-seat but other than that the only other double digit flights were 11 and 13 minutes. We clocked up 39 launches and managed to introduce 6 new folks to gliding (yup, gliding not soaring – well, other than one of them who was treated to soaring to 2,900).
