After a run of 4 exceptional months February started off badly and hasn’t relented. Yet another non-flyable day. For a brief period the weather relented, a little, and we could clearly see the hill to the south. During that period cloud was low and moving at a lick. Mind, the priority for the day was getting the winch back on-line and the weather didn’t stop our stalwart “Wednesday boys”.
The new rad is magnificent and now has over twice the capacity – perfect for those long, hot summer days (hm, seems far off at the moment). With a some ingenuity, some head scratching and a little swearing the rad was refitted, refilled and the winch roared into life – though sadly without a glider on the end of a wire. A huge thank you to Colin for organising the rebuild and refit (and all the running around it entailed. Thanks too to Ken H, Alan S and Dennis G for rolling their sleeves up and getting their hands dirty.
Looks like February is determined to continue its track record so fingers crossed for lots of flying in March.
