The drawback with high pressure and gorgeous sunny weather is that it tends not to result in good lift! Still, we fared much better than our friends in the south, who have, we gather, been treated to a dismal wet week while we have been basking in warm sunshine. AGV tells me that the Treasurer will be happy because we did quite a lot of aerotowing compared with what we were able to do in the 'summer' :)

Despite the flat conditions most folk enjoyed their sledge rides, and a few lucky (or skilful) pilots managed not only to find lift, but even to stay in it for a while before they got fed up with scratching.

It was good to welcome returning visitors ATV and WA back from the south for the week and possibly more. Here's to the next time - and better soaring conditions!
