Today was an exceptionally good day, with a brisk ESE wind but local cloudbases above 6000′ ! We were limited to three Club gliders, with six allocated pilots and of course worked as a team to comply with our Covid19 mitigation restrictions. Many thanks to all, especially John H. for standing in at short notice to fly the tug, even though he was on duty yesterday (and doesn’t need the practice), interrupting his ARC inspection work and extra thanks to the two LPCs ( Chris B & Chris R), who have additional workload at these times.
We did 19 winch launches and 4 tows and, third time lucky from the winch, Andy N. exceeded 6000′ for his Silver height gain ( to be confirmed). Our cross-country exponents romped round their tasks in such good conditions; check out the daily scores in the National Ladder ( from our website link).
