How to not glide somewhere cold

Posted 6 years, 8 months ago    0 comments

Our class didn't fly yesterday. The 18m and open classes launched, but struggled to stay up. We then basically ran out of time to fly our classes. Again it was a very strong wind, this time from the south. The good news is temparatures were down to normal levels, with a max of 28 degrees! We were wearing jackets on the grid due to the cold wind.

Today looks like a much better day with temperature up to 32 degrees, and less wind.

Speaking of not flying in cold places, I see the champs in Omarama are having a lot of non flying days, results and info are available here:

From our neck of the woods we have Alan Belworthy flying in the 15m class, Brett Hunter and Dave Jensen. There's also quite a few flying from Drury including Ross Gaddes, Nigel Davy / Nigel McPhee, and Grant Nelson / Geoff Gaddes. Good luck to all!
