Saturday 3rd

Well, the sky was looking good but nobody was staying up for much more than a circuit.  In the first dozen launches only Ken H managed to defy gravity for more just over an hour.   Chris B arrived at the field after closing his shop for the afternoon and rigged pronto.  Chris didn’t stop to ask why there was a club glider on the ground and a spare cable and nobody thought to tell him nobody was staying up.  Just as well otherwise he might not have flown for three quarters of an hour.  As it turned out the gliders launched shortly before him also went soaring and the ones launching in the following half an hour.
I went for a flight with Rob S in the Puchacz – once up near cloud no need to turn – just rattle along the front.  Cloudbase proved interesting and variable.  Around the airfield the cloudbase varied between 3,200 and 3,700 with “lumps” hanging down here and there..
