The ridge was not working but we still manged to get in sime extended flights and during the three days we flew we had the longst flights of the day. Carol and I even got into some weak SE evening wave which kept us at 1500 ft for 1hr 35 minutes. I last flew at Sutton Bank back in 1997 and the site is just as good and the locals are very friendly.
Looks like we will be returning for another long weekend later this year or for a longer stay next spring. If you fancy coming along let me know.
