Today looked like a mixed bag from the outset with rain forecast for the afternoon.

However, our CFI noted that there was a prediction of wave in the fairly strong Westerly wind so an intrepid bunch of pilots braved the cold to search for it. Always tricky to contact from a winch launch, we searched. Not entirely in vain as a couple of flights encountered reduced or nil sink in smooth air.

We only stopped trying when the rain finally drove us back indoors.
