Flying report 11/2/16 – Thermic Thursday

Words like exactly, said and tin spring to mind today. We had a brilliant day with wall to wall sunshine, quite warm and best of all no rain.

We were a little late starting but after that it just got better and better. By early afternoon it was obviously thermic as one member soared away to unbelievable heights and only coming back when he felt guilty for monopolising a glider after 26mins. Others tried and failed miserably to emulate his expertise until John H. went up. He managed a very creditable 16 mins.

It was the best day of the year so far and we were very lucky the field had dried enough to use. If today is anything to go by the the rest of the year should be great.

It was also good the see one of our new members from Needwood Forest come along to fly, he even managed to get a flight with our esteemed Chairman. He worked very hard all day and if the others from Needwood are anywhere near as helpful then it bodes well for the future.

A great day with no problems.
