Friday 6 March

A good day which coincides with my day off, can't be bad. Scraping frost off the car was a good sign, and so it proved, a sky full of big cu and a cloudbase of around 3800ft. The first rig of the season and I'd managed to leave the GPS aerial at home, so I contented myself with 2 hours or so of locally soaring in excellent conditions, getting used to my glider again, not having flown it since our trip to Aboyne last October. Jim Z12 and Dave 918 did Buckingham-Chieveley and Glyn G1 went to Membury and back.

Meanwhile back at base there was plenty happening, including Craig converting to the K18 after 4 solos in a K13, good progress.
