Flying Report Tuesday 28/11/17

We had a great day today and the weather was very kind to us. The wind was just as expected with a gentle WNW. first thing and then slowly veering to the North West during the day. It did increase to around 15kts but was never a problem so we were able to operate from outside the clubhouse all day.

Early on there was some cloud about and we could see showers out to the West and to the North but it soon cleared to a beautiful blue sky autumn day. We stopped for lunch as Charlie unexpectedly brought one of his delicious curries, it was as always “Delicious” thanks Charlie.

There were plenty of members there and we were kept busy all day, we stayed dry all day and although it did cloud over a little around lunch time by the time we had finished lunch it was a blue sky again and so it stayed for the rest of the day. We had no problems with the canopies misting and as we were landing on 33 even the low sun was not a problem, so we flew until the sun went down. Great day and well worth the effort.
