It was blowing a gale last night, and still fairly breezy this morning, a bit damp, so after some bike ridng (Superfit Glyn followed in the distance by Mike C, John H and Richard Crockett) and riverside walking we reconvened around 2pm for Jim White to experience landing in a turbulent southwesterly in ECZ (with Dave B in the back seat). His quote: 'Made me feel like a novice again'. It calmed down a bit later on so various people took to the sky including Steve in JH who got to 11,000ft. The sky was amazing as the sun set.
The forecast for tomorrow is still for southerlies, but probably not quite so strong, so it should be a good day.
