Saturday 21st March

Plenty of people around early this morning - but they were here to take gliders & trailers to the expeditions at Cerdanya and Shobdon. Meanwhile on the airfield there was plenty of training, aerobatics and trial flights through the day.

The forecast was for it to be thermic and generally blue. The small puffs of Cu coaxed Z3, 7Q, AJ, Z12 and others to attempt a task (BOB-BIC-CHN-BOO). Despite thermals kicking off from 09:30 between 800'-2500' there wasn't that much to go with later in the day. As a result I think several pundits actually did BOB-Stokenchurch-BOO before scuttling home.

The day remained blue, with high level Cirrus killing the day early, combined with very poor viz (navigation being achieved with the aid of a white stick and a plumb line for most of tHe day). Still plenty to talk about in the bar later with Bronze C legs and type conversions achieved.

Sunday looks more promising.
