Sunday 3rd August

Busy day – several T/Ls plus returns, together with several recent new members – good to see!
Cloud base  later over 4000 feet. Jim managed 300 km (it was a Nimbus!) – Peterborough return; Phil and Carol did Bicester/Devizes. Ken P gallivanted around Wiltshire and Alan H landed out near Welbourne to ‘phone a friend’ to return him to the airfield  for a ‘selfie’ retrieve.
Locally, cloud base improved with very strong thermals AND over 6 knots sink. Later, mostly the latter curtailed flight times, although Richard with gliding visitor, Catherine, managed almost an hour for a tour of the area. Trevor, having driven all but 3 of the winch launches of the day also scratched away for a decent flight at the end of the day!
