The weather forecast for Wednesday showed rain all day so a couple CUGC members may have consumed slightly too much port on Tuesday... In spite of the forecast, the hangar was unpacked by 10:30am and the rain passed during lunch. This left a quiet, still afternoon in its wake which was ideal for finessing take-offs, circuits and landings, although Chris still managed over an hour in our ASW 19.
Thursday, the last flying day, became the first sign of summer. We saw over 4000ft cloudbases and logged some remarkable thermic flights over the rugged Yorkshire terrain.
To say that we had an enjoyable, exciting and educational week would certainly be an understatement. Every one of us finished the week a better pilot than we started. We massively appreciate the support of everyone who made it possible. Special thanks go out to the office and everyone we flew with at Yorkshire Gliding Club and to Andrew for instructing us this week, and for helping us by towing up one of CGCs K21s.
We will certainly be back at Sutton Bank once this pandemic subsides and flying resumes. Stay healthy everyone!
