Gliding Status Report

Just one flight today in the Junior. Patchy conditions with reasonable thermals (up to 5 kts in places), and unreasonable sink in places (6-7 kts).

Totals: 85h55 (49h34 PIC)

On a related note, it is good to see Beaufort GC and VMFG join us in the Destination Bacchus Marsh OLC comp (Geelong is still number one!).

Gliding Status Report

Yesterday I had two flights (only because I launched too early and needed a relight):

Flight 1

Flight 2

Both in the Junior. As you can see, the second flight was much better at 2h55.  In a slightly related note, the Destination Comp on OLC, Geelong Gliding Club is winning (at this point, because the other two clubs have not turned up 🙂

Totals: 84h23 (48h2 PIC)

Gliding Status Report

I know I haven’t done one of these in a while.

I’ve been solo on the winch a while back, but I’m still having trouble with release with a load still on.

Today’s winch launch wasn’t that bad in that respect, but it was still back released under load.

Not entirely sure what is going on.
