And all of us had the same 'fish of the day', probably the best fish meal I have ever eaten, a lovely Halibut steak.

Midnight maiden flight of Stefan's Alula from the top of the small mountain next to the house, after a 30 minute climb.  Stefan flew the model for about 5 minutes all the way down to the house.

Hi Simon

Hopefully NOT it's final resting place!:)

Just imagine though - your very own mountain right next to your house........literally awesome!

Regards

We made a start on the same slope as yesterday, but had to abandon after a few due to light and variable conditions.  Now moved to the other side of the hill, but wind still too light.  So we took a group photo.

Only sport flying was possible today, although the wind did get up quite well about 20 minutes after we all voted to finish for the day, and people had already started heading down the hill.  Final chance tomorrow, with a 3pm finish if we fly.  Banquet tonight at the headquarters, Hagstua.

Only three chips,no no no no no no.

A English man can't get full on three little chips and a sardine.

Looks very nice😛

Enjoy and hope you all have a great time.

No rounds today but 28 deg C! Banquet tonight with whale and moose on the menu 😰

Here is the movie of Stefan's midnight maiden last night, only a 140m climb up the hill beside our house but felt like a mountain after a few beers!

Well we are flying again today in fairly light conditions, which have turned more variable.  Pete Gunning is going like a train and making inroads into the results.  Second drop is now applied, so we may see some changes in the positions.  Will probably get 5 or 6 rounds in today.
