Saturday 30th

Another day with a very modest turnout.  The stiff 90 degree cross-wind and the forecast of a better day on Sunday probably explained why only 7 folks flew on Saturday but 20 flew on Sunday.  Number of launches (and number of folks flying) was the same as Wednesday but this time cloud base was 3,700′.  The cross wind meant modest launch height and therefore there wasn’t much time to find a reasonable climb (i.e. climb rate>drift rate).  Rowland very kindly took most of the short flights and the rest of us had some reasonable soaring.  I claimed longest flight time with 56 minutes – which included a little help from the western ridge, the first time I have ever found anything there.
