Wednesday 4th December

Wednesday morning saw fog on the airfield and miasma in the club house as Andy, Alan B, Ken R & Bill plied dope on wing fabric. Fortunately the weather cleared before we were all comatose. The wind, forecast to be NW, obligingly shifted to the North allowing even the Puchacz to be launched to 2000ft. The ridge appeared to be giving 1kt of lift which meant that we were coming down at 1kt (think about it). So good launches together with slowly descending flights provided a welcome bonus for the staunch winter circuit bashers. The notable exception was Stephen O who clung on for just over the half hour in the Ka8. Had he rigged the LS3 – who knows what joys may have transpired.
