Saturday 30th March

Saturday turned out to be a bit of a mixed bag.

Most of the 28 flights were less than 10 mins but if you were fortunate to launch at the right time extended flights were possible.
Carol and I found some lift to the south west of the airfield and squeezed out a reasonable 1 hr 6 mins but Jim flying the Nimbus made use of the convergence to reach 3800 ft and stayed airborne for a creditable 1 hr 36 mins.
Later on Carol and Chris in the Janus made use of the same convergence line as Jim and flew from Vernham Dean to just north of Whitchurch climbing to 3800 ft without turning.
Lets hope this is the start of the soaring season!
