Steve J's flying diary 2019

26 Mar 2019. Tuesday. Seven Sisters.

Arrived at TO just after midday to find Nick & Nasher setting up on a green oasis in the blackened and recently burned grass. Nick launched first and we witnessed him being hoovered up to the heavens; where he stayed for the next 2 hours ! John and I followed, but failed to connect up with the thermal and had to be contented with a lesser altitude. The air was buoyant, but at times the lift would shut-off completely, necessitating a top landing. Nick however managed to roam freely in all four directions and at some distance from the hill. By 3pm the cycles seemed to get less frequent, but stronger. Having had about an hour's flying each, longest flight 30 mins, we packed up and picked up Nick who had finally come back down to earth and landed by the forestry gate at the bottom of the track. A cup of tea all round at the local cafe finished off the day. Max altitude 1,000 ato. Thermals at about 3 m/s.
Sunday, at this point in time, could be a classic, post-frontal spring day ? Maybe we should get thatĀ  thrashing at Marros done early, lolĀ  Smile
