Sunny and soarable today… …but not terribly warm – the ice didn’t thaw all day except in the sun. Meanwhile a great time was had by all, although poor Chris was stuck in the back seat of the K13 doing patter prep for his FI(S) course next month, Liz giving him a hard time from the front. Nigel gets ‘Soaring Hero of the Day’ award with 17 minutes and Liz and Chris get the XC award for being the only people to lay off enough to land the cables in line with the winch – nearly got to Burbage by the top of the launch. (But seriously, folks, not enough attention is being paid to this. We will have to start asking the winch-drivers to cut ALL launches that are not properly laid off. Make that New Year’s Resolution now!!) We flew from when the canopies de-iced until they started to mist up again. Nice day’s flying!
