11 October, the winds finally stopped us.

winds 170/25 good visibility and occasional rain showers

Flying started with the launchpoint a long way down the runway to ensure cables drop clear of buildings etc. A very awkward direction. Initially the winds were quite light and not a problem for flying. As the morning progressed, the winds reached a limit and we were forced to stop.

meanwhile Nigel Payne flew the ASW19 for the first time and Matthew Veals converted to the K23.

After lunch briefings were on instrument flying followed by a talk on Mcready. Course dinner was at the Old Lodge, Fish and chips seemed to be the favourite choice, and a beer of course.

The outlook for Friday is grim, with strong winds and rain, oh well the first 4 days were good.
