Sunday 2nd Feb

Busy day for the time of year with 27 launches and just a K13 and the Puchacz flying (a touch breezy for the K8).  It wasn’t until launch 16 that the challenge of a double digit flight was achieved, by Colin (11 minutes) but his victory was short lived when Carol landed a few minutes later having clocked up 12 minutes.  It was then back to single digits flights until I took a 1,900′ launch in the K13 and thought I might be in with a chance.  Unfortunately, I descended relentlessly to 800′.  Fortunately there was some very weak lift that should help delay the circuit for a couple of turns.  That weak lift improved and took me to 1,400 before it disappeared (er, was lost).  That was enough to take longest flight honours with 21 minutes.
