Sat 23rd (alternative view)

The day started with Bob tricking us all into holding by landing back after little more than a circuit.  Then he jumped straight back in the glider and disappeared.  There was good lift around, but also strong sink and big blue gaps, such that even with the northerly wind I needed more height to get back from the other side of the A4 than I actually had.  Everyone else managed to avoid the trap though, and congratulations to Jeremy on his 2hrs towards XC endorsement.  We await news of where Jim and Pete went.

    Jim and I flew up to Oxfordshire together and then he went on to Cheltenham and back whilst I came home. It was a day of amazing lift, 7kts average in a straight line at 80knots where there was lift but equally a day where the spread-out meant you could easily (and very quickly) be under unsoarable skies. Thanks to Chris for the lend of B1.
