Wed 9th May

Another poor forecast with rain arriving in the the afternoon, although  it was a bright start and quite warm it quickly started to cloud  over from the West. The wind picked up so it was back to Winter clothing, that is except for Peter Smith who despite being frozen kept his shorts on.. that is until after lunch and suffering from hypothermia he put sensible long trousers on.

Most people managed a soaring flight,  Mike Fitz and John Street had 30min and 2,000ft on the first flight.
We kept flying until we had gone through the lis,t with the weather looking threatening, we put the toys away and it started to rain as we were closing the hanger doors. - John Street.
