Wednesday 9th

If you like a bit of rough this was the day for you.  After a weather check flight Colin declared it a “bronze and beyond” day for flying solo.  Enough of a north wind to tickle the ridge but thermic activity meant the ridge would not be able to be relied upon.  There was a large element of luck whether you caught a thermal or copped some of the 6 down.  About 1 in 3 managed to ret some soaring (i.e. over 20 minutes).  The stars of the day were Ken R who had 2 flights in the club’s Vega of over an hour each and Trevor G with almost 3 hours in his Jantar.
