Waving not drowning

After a week of howling gales and tropical rain it was a real treat to see classic wave as far south as Booker. It was a glorious day with clear blue skies and the long flights were a delight. For some pilots it was their first experience of 'proper' wave and this will have encouraged them to join us on our annual trip to Aboyne .

Those on the aerobatics course led by Graham and Alun had less time to enjoy the view and no chance to get into the wave but they flew 3 sorties each and all benefitted from the expert tuition. Flying went on till late, we don't usually see the evening star with 3 gliders still aloft.

Plenty of fun to be had in the winter, gliding isn't just a summer activity!
