Wed 29th July

A small group of Wednesday regulars to start with, but whilst we were setting up the launch point quite a lot of private gliders were getting ready, so it looked as if we were to have a busy day.
Grid setting up (David Clements)
John Sillett and Peter Field were instructing in the two-seaters and Peter was also tuggie for the day.
The days soaring was quite mixed with some periods of reasonable lift and other times no lift at all.
K21 on approach (David Clements)
Pete Startup (who else) had the longest flight - over two hours - the rest of the soaring was quite mixed and when the sea breeze set in, the soaring stopped.
James Smart in ASW19 (Trevor Russell)
Well done to James Smart and Trevor Russell for both converting to ASW19 their new acquisition.
We had over 30 flights but it was not a cross-country day as Pete Startup nearly found out, well done to Sandy Harrop and Malcom Vest for re-soloing after the lock down. - John Street
