Wednesday 7th October

Soaring in October – happy days.  Well, for some at least.  With the wind due west launch heights were modest so not a lot of time to catch that elusive thermal.  Stan B did and took it to cloud base at 2,400′ for a 28 minute flight.  Only 2 minutes behind that was new member Michele R, closely followed by Paul P in the K13.  Tony P made his penultimate trip to the club (hanging up his soaring boots on his 86th birthday next week) memorable with a high-key at Vernham Dean and just making it back to the field.  With no head-wind landings were long so retries took more time.  However, we still manage to clock up 31 launches.

Particular thanks to Bob S, Rowland P and Paul P for the efficient launching service.
