Sunday 8th May

First flight of the day was rather short but that was due to it being a test flight of HCF coming back online.  After that most, but by no means all, flights enjoyed some soaring.  Ken R and Bill C disappeared off in the Duo Discus for over 3 hours, as did Phil M and Chris B.  I clocked up over 3 hours in the back seat but that involved 11 launches.  Climbs to 4,500′ reported.

A busy day with 46 launches.  A big thank you to Richard D helping out with back seat flying – I would never have got through the instruction list without his help.
