Good forecasts gets pilots flying

February ended with a great soaring day (for the time of year) and several soaring flights and cross countries by J1M and AJ (BIC-DID) and observations that the task was set too small!

Today's forecast NWly and unstable airmass promised some flying on the ridge and the prospect of a good soarable sky. AJ, EN and J1M set off for the ridge but quickly realised the sky was looking too good to stay there and set off X/C - not sure where they got to, maybe the ladder will reveal?

Rolf decided he wanted to have a look at the ridge and set off in KCZ for an hour or so before climbing in a thermal to get the height to get home.

Finally late in the day John H set off for some soaring under a sky that still looked good at 16:00.
