Good call.

 

While tomorrow may we’ll be flyable it would be more of a challenge than a worthwhile comp. 

Keeping  it fun for all.

At least we can watch the final rounds of the F3f World Championship in Rugen.

Or, if current conditions persist, you could mix up some epoxy and observe it drying.

As long as it's not 5 minute... You may end up having to mix a few pots.

Did anyone fly at Ashes today?

The forecasters seem to have got it somewhat wrong.

Been dry all day here in Cheltenham. 

Been to the Literary Festival but it's proved as expensive as it might have been if I was flying for a while, as SWMBO decided she liked that ring I promised her 😘

Hi Andy 

I was watching the Mynd gliding club weather cameras and it was raining most of the day with really low cloud. 

I know why you are asking though cause I thought the same thing, the weather by us was awesome. If you Google long mynd weather cam it will take you see the gliding club page.

I was watching  myndcam.

There was a 30 min shower at 10am , after that things improved and the Viz looked ok. What surprised me most was the myndcam saying 20 g30 kts. I was wondering what the winds were on ashes with The funnel effect and compression of the slope.

When Jerry and I were there earlier this week pole cottage had half the wind strength of ashes. ( Both 45 degrees off ideal).

Correct call made on the event. It could have been a model wrecker. I know Dave Woods and I will try to attend all of the winter leagues at the Mynd. Plus Mike Shellim is interested but cannot attend next month.

Fingers crossed for a couple of good weather days.

Is the South Westerly face on the main face or do you fly somewhere else.
