Despite the generally gloomy weather there was lots of activity at the launch point. The tug is U/S, awaiting a new magneto, but good height winch launches were possible in a 12 knot North Easterly wind. Lots of hangar activity still as hopefuls fettled for the imminent good weather.
Just a few miles north of us there was sunshine and cumulus when Mark Hawkins and I flew the Venture along the Pewsey valley and back via Salisbury, even stopping to try some lift around Rivar Hill. Cloudbase over 4000ft! The solid overcast from Andover back to The Park reduced the cabin temp.
Flying ended just in time to allow a committee meeting at to begin at 17.00.
Sunday’s looking good in prospect with a few trailers even left out on the field in anticipation of the first XCs of the year from The Park.
