Sunday 20th July 2014

Having finally worked out how to operate a calendar I arrived to find that the club was already operating, (thanks Phil and Richard for stepping in and getting things going whilst I slumbered on in blissful ignorance of the fact that I was on duty!), I leaped into the back of a K13 and had a great day’s soaring. Anyone who thought that the forecast was not good needs to read the Lasham forecasts more carefully because things went pretty much as it predicted with soaring conditions and moist air for most of the day and the drier air appearing some time after 15:00 giving higher cloudbase and trips to Marlborough in a K13. Selvam arrived back announcing that there were no more thermals at around 17:00 so we decided to put things away (well no one had any real enthusiasm for much more soaring anyway). I decided that we’d prove Selvam wrong so the last 4 cables produced 3 soaring flights and a training Launch Failure, last landing somewhat after 18:00. Much fun was had by all and I look forward to the head-cam view of Ken’s loop 🙂
