Sat 14th Sept was a beautiful sunny one. Not a cloud in sight, and a gentle SE wind. Hardly the glider pilot’s vision of a great gliding day! Several were rewarded with prolonged flights though after Chris Teasdale showed us where to find the lift, in HTR, over the higher ground. The whole club fleet was out and well used during the lovely warm day. Cady eked out the last dregs of the day, scratching for over 40 minutes above the same spot on the ridge, honing his turning skills after a summer lay-off.
The Longleat balloons were on show in the morning and evening, book-ending a very pleasant autumnal day.
(For KTrax flight log enthusiasts, don’t believe all of the exaggerated times on yesterday’s log file. There were obviously some logging issues. I don’t think anyone flew much over an hour and a half. )
