Saturday 26th

Arrived at the field to find equipment DI’d but not moved into position but with my appearancewe had enough to operate (just).  By the time we were ready to fly a few more had arrived so Ken P was thrown into the air for a weather check and to decide whether we just put everything back – there was rather a lot of wind and cloudbase didn’t look that grand.  Before the launch Colin suggested to Ken that if cloudbase was at 1,000′ then he’d probably still be able to land ahead.  Turned out cloudbase didn’t get in the way but we watched the K13 sitting stationary above the winch – when he finally headed downwind for his circuit he really moved.  Just the one K13 out and it was a matter of pick your instructor to fly with.  Just 11 launches but that was enough to take the total launches for November past the number achieved for the whole of November last year.  Longest flight honours went to James W beating the next longest flights by 33% – yup, he managed a whole 8 minutes.
