Sunday 2nd October rain gone !

Well the overnight rain cleared away nicely leaving us with a wonderful soaring day at Rivar.

Initially cloudbase was quite low but as the sun took effect it rose to well over 3800ft which enabled many members to have extended soaring.

I don’t have the log sheets to hand but I know that as the day progressed there were flights in excess of an hour. Certainly Jim Gavin and Nigel were kept busy!

Here are a few shots from the back seat of the Janus:

All in all not bad for October, just goes to show that soaring opportunities can be had when you least expect them 🙂
