Sat 2nd September – Summer is here ?

At last a good day at a weekend!  The full Nympsfield grid was present, with around 30 gliders on grid by 9:00 ready to depart XC and the instructing team busy as well.

Cloudbase was slow to rise delaying grid launch, but eventually most got away to tasks of 250-300Km to the south coast and Lasham area. The instructing team led by Jake and Alison kept busy into the early evening as a variety of finishing techniques were displayed by the returning pilots. Nick got most of his tugging hours in a single day and the winch crew were working hard. Many thanks to all who helped – a lot of hard work with such a busy day. Good to see several of our hard working instructors getting good flights in their own gliders.

Now the summer season can start in earnest……..  oh dear, it’s September!
