Day Two

by | Aug 15, 2022 | News | 2 comments

Prepared for anything the task setters had ready A, B and C tasks for all three classes but the weather did not play ball. The first rain shower came through during briefing and it never cleared up enough to encourage thermal activity. So after delaying the grid launch to 1300 the Race Office made the call to cancel the day, known as “scrubbing” in Britain. Pilots made the most out of the off day with hiking , sight seeing and some even getting rated in motor aircraft with The Gliding Centre. Tomorrow the forecast is not looking overly promising but there’s always a chance.

    …..bad luck Liz and Team – and well done to everyone over the past 18 months for getting this all to the grid (and round on Sunday) – typical British summer weather yesterday though (and today by the looks of it).

    Well it is Summer in the UK! At least it was a stellar day on Sunday and the weather is looking better for the end of the week so all’s looking good. Well done!
