Canterbury and a Bengali Banquet
An early start for everyone this morning: the forecast looked great with strong south-westerlies and sunny spells, and we wanted to make the most of what looked like it would be a good day. All were up and raring to go by 8! I travelled over to Charing on the train to arrive in time for lunch.
Unforuntately I could only see 50 yards of the Kent countryside outside the train window, certainly not enough visibility to go gliding. Forecasts are not to be trusted.
After a delayed start due to fog/low cloud we got some check flights, but the cloud base was too low so the day was scrubbed. So:
A day characterised by flying: CU came out and joined the Kent fleet at the launch point. Nadanai got into the two-seater for the first time in six months and made progress towards re-soloing. Meanwhile as I got ready for a flight, Malcolm came running over begging to use the asw19 for his first cross-country - his 50km Silver leg.
<p>Sunday, Sunburn and Checkflights Graham, Malcolm and James arrived early on sunday morning shortly followed by myself. We quickly got our names down on the flying list and made our selves useful around the launch point (earning some major brownie points). We all managed to get some check flights done towards the end of the afternoon.
