May 22nd – Great Ontur day

The forecast was pretty accurate today, and we had a good soaring window from about 2pm until late. Andy in the Duo with Robin and Alex in HBB both completed their 300k flights and Jeremy in the DG300 and John in the ASW19 their slightly shorter tasks. EVY also flew for nearly 4 hours with Steve then Viv flying.

The downside was an awkward NW wind for launching, the plus side, a nice warm day at last.
