Didn't get out until after midday.

By then the thermals were popping off everywhere, causing gusts from all directions. After several failed launch attempts, I decided to leave it rather than risk lines in the prop. :(

But - summer's here and the evening are getting longer. :)

Yes, a day full of highs and lows due to the conditions.

Vario 'off the scale' for 10-15 seconds at a time.

Averager (30 secs) max was 4.7m/s on one flight, 4.2 on two others.

One flight lasted just 8 minutes because it was too rough. 7 of those minutes was off power and I landed in a different field to the one I took off in!

Gusts on the ground were 0 to as high as 24mph recorded, may well have been higher than that. Take off timing was critical, but there were reasonable steady wind periods.

Could not get to base due to airspace above and to the NE.

Some of my PG friends made personal XC bests on Saturday.
