Well what a fantastic club day we all had on Sunday. Strangely enough there were plenty of annual check flights taking place which resulted in lots of cable break practice. However, since the thermals didn’t turn up till after lunch this wasn’t much a problem. I counted four new members joining in with plenty of our regulars at the launch point helping out when not in cockpit learning more flying skills themselves, and was great to see. When the thermals did turn up, sometime over lunch, conditions were actually good for the time of year and merited going somewhere, although I didn’t – but maybe 493 or 494 did. 882 was also out and about too. So a really excellent day was had by all, in stark contrast to Saturday where even when it looked to have had stopped raining and a allowing for a walk we returned drenched!
