What a glorious day this turned out to be – sunshine and thermals!
With club members turning out for instruction, check flights and solo flying, not to mention the volume of private gliders busily rigging first thing in the morning for tasks of up to 500k – this I`ll leave to others to share their task experiences and achievements.
Doug Trimmer gained his 2 hours towards his Bronze, Nick (Machin) converted to JKW. Cloud base being just over 4,000ft with thermal activity late into the afternoon and early evening enabling club members to receive their upper air exercises. First launch at 10.49 and final launch of the day at 17.18. 43 winch launches and approximately 68 hours of flying time with club and private gliders, the last landing returning from is task being 18.51
Many thanks to Mike and Phil for covering the instruction for the day.
