Sunday 6th July

Luckily the forecasted showers in the afternoon failed to materialise so we managed to get a full day of gliding in.

With the westerly cross wind launch heights were not fantastic but we were still able to get some soaring in.

All in all we had 32 flights, the longest flight was a meagre 28 minutes with the next longest flight of around 18 minutes, modesty prevents me from saying who did those!

Colin mended the leaking exhaust manifold on the Skybrid winch in double quick time which gave Jim McCormick and I a chance to test the reserve winch before the Skybrid was returned back to service.

Tony Chapman unselfishly volunteered to be ballast and the link to the  resulting video is below.

All in all a very pleasant days flying.
