Sep 10 – Great wave day

Another South Easterly wind day, an unusual wind here, but it does produce a good wave system behind the Cadair Idris and the local ridge. The early tows were quite a handful in rotor near the airfield but did lead a way through to the wave. Most gliders managed the transition in to wave.

Sep10Clem

Clem, took this great picture to prove he really did get his gold height. He managed a height gain of 10,000′ and reached just over 12,000′ behind the Cadair Idris. Well done Clem.

Sep10Laurence

Brother, Laurence, didn’t miss out either. He flew in the Duo for the first time and with a little bit of help from Robin in the back, climbed up to 7000′ for his first experience in wave. Here heading for Cadair Idris.

Sep10Binder

Ed flew the Binder back to Dunstable, starting with a wave climb to 11000′, and a few thermals. Not bad for 2 litres of fuel! Getting to the runway was a squeeze between the sign boards and the gorse bushes as you can see.

All in all a great day at Llanbedr.c
