A handful of long duration flights yesterday with John Thomson in JMY for 1hr 40min, Tony Mountain and Francesca getting into wave at Fochabers and directly over the site to 10000ft for almost 3hours. John Campbell and Robert Tait went on a 3hr 30min cross country task in 115 - EAS, Loch Kinord, Lochindorb Castle and back. https://www.bgaladder.co.uk/dscore.asp?FlightID=62371&RC=X

Conditions were tricky to begin with, with about an hour stuck on the ridge and surrounding area at 2500ft trying to find that elusive thermal that got us up into the wave. Once up there conditions were stunning and 10000ft could then easily be achieved directly above Easterton!
