Day 1 and it's a fallback to B task

First launch set at 12.45. Everyone is on the grid talking about streeting vs wave vs ridge running.

We started launching but it soon became obvious that it was less that ideal conditions. Several pilots opted to not launch and were later vindicated by the return of all those who had launched.

The grid is now repositioning to the Clubhouse while a shower passes through.

Welcome to British Summers!

Launching started at 12.45 with task B confirmed. Gate opening soon just as the top cover rolls in. Looks like could involve plenty of tactical waiting. Mention of showers upwind too!
