Today turned out rather blue with few cumulus. Fairly fast climbs were coupled with equally fast and extensive sink later on.
Several pilots planned and launched on a 500km+ task. Snitterfield SW > Cambridge West > Great Malvern > Bedford Bridge > Snitterfield SW.
Mike C in an LS10, Barry & Barry in a Duo and visiting Jack T in an LS8 aborted the task at various stages but Stratford’s junior pilot Daniel Brown in a LAK 19 & Andy B in an LS8 continued round.
Andy came back first having reached all turn points and Daniel Brown struggled along the last leg to complete his first 500km task flight.
