    Harting Down today was excellent, although a little cold in the wind. However, the trees provided a considerable degree of shelter, and did a good job of hiding our views of some of the low flying full-size gliders. The other gliders were so low that they made the trees look enormously tall. So low indeed, that I thought they were landing out!!!

    Lift was excellent throughout the day, and it was very nice to fly without the sun in our eyes, as it was at Whitesheet last week.

    Lunch Trevor flew his Willow, check out his lunch box (yes I mean the box with his lunch in)

    I flew my Pat Teakle Vega and Salto, and Trev flew his Pic 20. Barry flew his gull-wingedGeneral view beauty and the Shooting Star, Peter his Pike very Superior.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    And that is all I can cope with tonight, the pics keep jumping up and down, or disappearing altogether, but hey ho the Forum is back and comms are much easier now.

     

    Cheers Paul and Paul’s bro.

    So the xmas outing turned out to be low cloud and damp but a few of us gave it a go with between 50 and 100 feet visibility.

    Those attending were Peter Willams, Barry, Peter wood, Roger who shared Whiskey, mince pies and stollen cake..

    Close proximity flying only resulted in one midair coming down together with very minor damage between Mr Williams and Mr Hood .
