Hot, sweaty, but actually a delightful walk up with excellent company. Thanks Kate. First flight after my cracked ribs and a new glider to try.
It looked OK, but the first flight ended igominously at the bottom! A second, more arduous walk up and this time I was more successful. A later start, but the condtions were a lot better. I managed a small triangle that in retrospect could have been bettered by some margin as it was the usual late bouyancy and climbs to over 5000'.
Yeh, should have pushed it but I got a lot out of the day in many other ways.
