Remember Soaring?

Found a video from Easter 2017. This is what soaring was like....

More fun at Denbigh

Today was good fun. We started with thermals all along the ridge, then they died and the ridge started working, and we finished the day with some pre-frontal wave with climbs to 8,000ft or so. Here are some pics:

Booker on tour - Spring expedition

Here we are again at Lleweni Parc, near Denbigh in North Wales, where our Duo Discus 315 has spent the winter. Chris Gill the CFI says he has ordered up some nice weather for us and it's certainly be OK so far. Yesterday there was a bit of wave and today the ridge and thermals were working well. Here are a few pictures of the local scenery.

Richard's view today from a bit lower down

Jubilee Tower on top of Moel Famau, highest hill in the Clwydian range.
The tower was built in 1810 for the Jubilee of George III

Meanwhile back at Booker we are open, and operating whenever the weather allows, so come along and get out in the fresh air and fly.

Booker's Duo Discus is on holiday in North Wales

Booker's Duo Discus has been stationed at Lleweni Parc - home to Denbigh Gliding Club - for the winter, and various members have taken the opportunity to get some fantastic wave soaring. Below is a selection of pics from their visits.

Any Booker member is welcome to go and have some fun in Wales, as long as you have linked up with an instructor to fly with you. Best way is to join the Booker XC Whatsapp group - ask Richard.
