Saturday 16th

The forecast fog in the morning did not materialise but there was a low (750′) cloudbase that took a couple of hours to lift.  Not a lot of thermal activity but a few members managed to extend their flights.  Steve B being the first to prove there was “something” with a 22 minute flight.  I followed him in the K8 only to have a graceful descent from the 1,900′ launch without encountering any trace of a thermal.  Those who launched around 14:45 (Steve G in the K8 and Rob J in his Cirrus) did best with 29 and 31 minutes respectively.
We were pleased to welcome new member John G who, despite a year since last flying (at another club), had not forgotten how to handle a glider.
4:23 hours flown off 26 launches
