Fine start to November

After a pretty dismal October, November got off to a good start with a fine turnout from the Wednesday crew.  Although an up-and-down kind of a day we did get lots of launches in (34) and 19 folks got their backsides off the ground.  Not only that but donut service was resumed.  Bill C reported a tantalising sniff of weak wave but it only got him just into the double digit flight time.  A little while later Charles Mc equaled Bill’s 10 minutes.  Despite 3 attempts Martin S was not able to better (or match) that time.  We were treated to a fly-by from a biplane which we guessed may have been Steve Jones from Southern Sailplanes at Membury.
