Sunday 15th

Certainly a lot quieter day than the previous Sunday – maybe due to it being Fathers Day or could some have been distracted by events going on in Brazil?  No chance of folks dropping in from other clubs – with pretty much complete cloud cover and a base of 1,800 they wouldn’t have strayed far from their home clubs (where hopefully last weeks drop-ins were practicing doing proper circuits).  The sun did make some brief appearances but those who had the foresight to bring their coats were wearing them.  The occasional, weak, thermal and some slight ridge lift resulted in 20+ minutes being the target for the day.  Top dog honours going to Phil+Carol and Alan P.  A good training day for those needing to refine their take-off and landings and for instructors needing to complete revalidation checks.  A modest 6 hours flown off 38 launches.
