Sunday 13 Jan – Happy New Year!!!

I seem to be the first person posting this year – and what a nice start to the year! As forecast, sunny and thermic, kicking off the ridge and streeting gently. OK, it wasn’t what you’d call balmy, we did an audit and 5 layers appeared to be the popular clothing choice – nobody was too hot, that’s for sure and anything exposed went blue in seconds. But with the wind straight down the strip, launches even in the 2-seaters were exceeding 2000′, well above cloud tops initially, and always pinging you straight to cloudbase which probably peaked at around 1700′. Selvam took advantage of the nice weather to triple his number of solo launches, Darren proved that after a 2-month lay-off, he’d not forgotten how to do it, we all got to salute the CFI when he appeared and everyone had a good time except possibly when the back-seat drivers got bung-pull-itis (bit of an epidemic of it today I fear!) Thanks all who came and contributed, Liz
