Wednesday 9th November

Because of the strong wind and poor forecast not many members turned up today, as soon as enough bodies had turned up, we got one K21 out. 
A good strong northwesterly (John Street)
Pete Warren took the first flight with Malcolm Vest after the wind strength had eased a little and found plenty of ridge and thermal lift and airbraked down after 30min to let others fly, John Street and Chris Warnes were not so lucky on the second flight they had to return early because of an approaching  line squall.
In the meantime John Sillett got the DG505 out ready to fly, but by this time the rain was quite heavy so we went to lunch.

During lunch the rain got worse so regrettably we put the kit away and put paid to a day that showed early promise and retired to the clubhouse to discuss the American Presidential Election and other more important issues. - John Street.
