Saturday 15th

At least there wasn’t any fog and the sun did appear.  With a stiff 90 degree cross wind and strong sink (6 down) a good day for annual checks.  This kept the duty instructor entertained for a while and gave the winch driver (Chris K) the opportunity to show off his creativity in producing launch failures.  Peter E flew with David N who signed up as a member – our 3rd junior member within a month.
I guess you’re probably thinking “with that strong sink, there must have been some lift on offer”.  Unfortunately no – well not within our reach.  With the longest flight of the day going to Chris K with an 8 minute flight, that tells you how “good” it was.
