Wednesday had it all – ridge, thermals and wave. The fact the wave was seen in the distance and the thermals interfered with the ridge just meant the lift could not be taken for granted and one had to work at it. Four club gliders in operation and at times an empty launch point. The Vega blinked as it emerged from the hangar for the first time this year. Only 3 launches taken in it but it did clock up 99 minutes of flying time. Honours for longest flight of the day (and for 2012) went to Steve B with 48 minutes. 12 members flew and we did 22 launches. JMX was rigged and JPC derigged and into the workshop.
