Wednesday 5th

What the forecasters promised the weather failed to deliver but it was good to see the sun (even if the wind was surprisingly cold).  The forecast was responsible for persuading 5 gliders to be rigged.  Once rigged they waited and waited for the promised thermals and in the end just flew anyway.  When Trevor G and Bob B only get short flights it tells you it isn’t easily.  Only 6 of the 33 flights managed 40 or more minutes.  Modesty prevents me from mentioning who was the only person to manage more than an hour (with 1:24) but then I had an incentive – being airborne is a great way to escape hay fever.
Quite a number of Lasham gliders scrapping around near us.  Two dropped in and reported that there were lots of landouts.
