Apr 25th – Ontur Trip Begins

Today marked the beginning of the London Gliding Club Expedition to Ontur in Spain. The trip is for 4 weeks starting this week-end.

Robin and Phil set off in tug “CB” on the first leg of the flight to Ontur. Apart from an inconvenient 15 knot headwind, the flight crossed the Channel from Hayling Island to the Normandy beaches just West of Caen. We didn’t see much of the sea as it was covered in fog, However, over France, visibility improved and there was some pretty good convection to 6000′
