Busy blue day with circuits being the order of the day. Lots of areas of 4+ sink but without the compensating lift – what little lift there was around was weak and didn’t stay for a full 360. At around 14:00 there was a glimmer of hop when Paul P did a record busting (for the day!) 21 minutes but it was back to circuits for lessor mortals. About an hour later Rob J upped the anti with 44 minutes. For the next 3 hours about half the launches resulted in soaring flights with Colin B as top-dog with 1 hour and reporting climbs to 2,900 (Ken H and Martin S were hot on his heels but just a few minutes shorter).
We handed over to the TLE crew to fly a scout group and ended up with a total of 55 launches for the day.
