Heath Robinson eat your heart out

The one day of the week that it wasn’t sunny – overcast and lively NEly.  As a result a modest turnout but before we got started the first couple of hoops of the new shelter go erected and the K8 derigged and into the workshop for its ARC.

Despite the wind direction and speed the ridge didn’t work consistently.  However, Ken R still managed to keep the Vega aloft for just over an hour.  Three others managed around 20 minutes, one of which was me taking a rare solo.  Thermals were rough and ran out of steam at 2,000′.
