Flying 25 June 2016

Despite the weather being cold and miserable, an unstable air-mass came through the area around lunch time. Ben Carter managed to scrap 28 minutes in the K8 and got to 2300’. Derek Spencer then had a go and got 64 minutes. A lot of the thermals were in the order of 0.5 knot but  the K8 can thermal at just over 30 knots at a relatively shallow angle of bank allowing the pilot to take advantage of small and weak thermals. The first few thermals topped out at 2600’ but Derek's last thermal went to 3000’. All good fun.

A big thanks to Leigh Stokes who drove the winch on Sunday and he drove the winch almost all day Saturday for BVGC. He did get a conversion to the Marianne on Saturday as well.

Flinders Camp June Long Weekend

The weather was kind to us in that there was no rain once we got up there apart from a very light drizzle when we arrived on the Friday. The wind wasn't the nicest on the Saturday but the ridge was working well on the Sunday. Monday was a little more difficult to work the ridge and there was wave around that Leigh got into in his ASW20. Cath and Darren got into it in the Dimona right over the middle of the Pound. Tuesday had wave too which Leigh got into again.

Apart from the leaf springs on both sides of the 6x4 trailer snapping on the way up to the Flinders, it all went well. Leigh, Ben and Derek did some Bush Mechanics on the 6x4 and using nothing but what came from the trailer and some wood, they got the trailer mobile enough for it to be towed back to Adelaide, albeit slowly.
