Sat/Sun 1st & 2nd June

Two good(ish) days to start Andy Davies coaching week. Slow start both days, with the course and a couple of club pilots doing tasks down to Basingstoke on day 1.

Sunday saw a better forecasts and a selection of 300Km tasks were set, the coaching course mainly took the option of going down to Lasham area and then along the South Coast to near Cerne Abbas and home. The locals (or “bored with Basingstoke” team) went down to Blandford, along to near North Hill and home via Sherbourne.  The final leg proved a challenge as sea air had started to encroach around Bath/Keevil, but most got home with one landout and a small amount of 2-stroke used by a few.

Training continued with an active launch point, plenty of cadets and students, and at least one solo and a couple of silver distances to complete the day.
