Proper gliding weather
Yesterday was an excellent day, and Nils (EN) set a task down to Goodwood and up to Northampton and places in between. He set off with Denis (370) and Steve (HA) and a few hours later back they came, with Steve having completed his first 500. Some esoteric rule about barrels and sectors means he can't claim it for a Diamond, so he'll just have to do it all again!

Today was a bit different - hot and blue - but it was easy enough, if a bit nerve wracking, to make progress as the climbs were consistently over the villages. Having a wet hat helped!
