Wavey Wednesday

Chris K and Rob J returned from the first launch reporting so scraps of 0.  Carol P took the next launch in the K8 and returned 56 minutes later, Paul P followed in a K13 and returned 55 minutes later.  That got Bob B pulling the Vega from the hanger and taking the next launch and flew for 49 minutes.  Nobody was thermalling – they were all sliding around the sky following the wave up to 3,000′.  Most got a taste of the wave but only two more flights (Chris K with Rob J in the K13 and Trevor G in the K8) got decent times (48 and 46 minutes).
15 of us clocked up almost 7:30 of flying off 24 launches – an unexpectedly good day.  All that flying plus mini-muffins (Wednesday flying is very civilised).
