2011-10-01 & 02 Fantastic flying weekend on Tan & White Horse
Saturday: A whole weekend of flying in the high pressure and nearly 30 degrees balmy Indian summer. Saturday started with flying on Tan Hill as the wind was SE’ly. Met up with Cloudbase and had a lovely morning flying on Tan with wingman John. At least 2 hours in the morning followed by a lovely glide to the landing field back at the barn to pack up and walk up towards those flying on White Horse. Pitched up and then flew until late evening, lovely!!!!
Sunday: John and I headed back to White Horse to be met with others early. The conditions were light to start with for some ground handling and light soaring but soon picked up and became very useable and quite thermic. I crossed over the first hill towards Walkers Hill for the first time and had some lovely climbs over the horse. Picked a climb up to 2200 feet AMSL which was about base due to the inversion. Headed over the back towards Milk track and pushed back to White Horse to continue flying. Nearly 4.5 hours of flying on Sunday and a fantastic weekend. The busiest day I have seen on White Horse.
