The bad weather could be seen perhaps two miles to the west and during the day it also circled around to the south but it never got to the airfield. One advantage of this was that we were treated to some soaring on the large areas of rising air that can often be found on the leading edges of showers. Good fun.
Other news is that junior Matthew Wiles passed his driving test yesterday, 16 months after his first solo flight on his 16th birthday, and immediately demanded to commence his winch driver training. He seems pretty good already. I was treated to a couple of great launches while instructing in the K13; speed nailed all the way up and launch heights just short of 1400 feet. Leading the way again Matthew.
