Thursday 18th January

With more showers forecast and an already soggy field from 24mm of rain over the last 3 days, it was no surprise that the morning was spent indoors. Initially there was a slide show from George Sanderson  showing wear and tear damage on glider airframes and control systems. This was followed by a review of the highlights from the Sailplane Grand Prix (SGP) currently ongoing in Chile. Watch them live

After lunch, it looked like  there was a nice gap coming from the showers, and the kit was readied for an aerotow only afternoon.

There were 7 aerotows with the two-seaters and a Junior and all managed to soar on the ridge for extended flights.  - J&P
