Wednesday 14th

I suppose one has to feel sorry for the folks burden by wok and unable to get out to play on such a day.  From 11:00 to 13:30 everything we threw at the sky soared away (well, with one exception).  Colin B took the LS3 to somewhere north of Bristol.  The Duo Discus (with Ken R and Bill C) only ventured off a modest distance as Bill had to head to work in the afternoon (the suggestion to “drop him off” was not thought to be prudent since he was working at Heathrow).
In the afternoon the blue hole settled in with great looking cu to the north, south, east and west.  The prospect of the good stuff from the north coming within reach kept tempting folks but only a few got lucky – Rob J in the Cirrus (on his free launch), Steve B in the ASW-15 and myself in the LS3.  Climbs to 4,800 were available and the visibility was exceptionally good.  25 hours flown off 37 launches.
