It's new year, so let's turn out the whole hangar! The ridge was working this morning and R1 and 354 got the sniff of wave in the glen, but had to scuttle back to avoid a huge rain shower.
Once that passed through, the wind dropped a bit and the ridge stopped working, but picked up again towards the end of the afternoon when Ellen took a visitor up into gentle wave for an hour or so.
Phil and Adrian took the K21 for its first flight after repair, to find there's a problem with the TE and vario systems. Probably due to the trip to Yorkshire and back on its open trailer. Fingers crossed for a quick fix tomorrow!
Thanks to Robert for the tows.
