Story 1
Full Story
The first full weekend since the Rutland Airsports CAA permit was issued and all the hard work of the last year has paid off. Alex Colbeck was first away, before the accelerator cable on the winch went, which was quickly fixed. The Accuracy team who were down for the weekend weren't getting much accuracy as the thermals seemed to be keeping them away from the target. Then Phil Bibby found a nice core off a moderately high tow and disappeared over the back at 3 grand. I was off in the next tow cycle, happily connecting with a good climb off the southern peri track and away we went. It wasn't fast going and there seemed to be an inversion around 3600-4000 and it wasn't until Wisbech that I finally broke through and got to base at 5600. I'd had glimpses of Phil's white Avax in the distance but couldn't catch him in the air. In the end we all posted nice flights. But the main thing was that we've put North Luffenham and Rutland Airsports firmly on the map as a flying destination and an XC site. Plus we got to fly routes that very few PGs have flown before. A huge thank you goes out to everyone who has worked so hard to get our club to this point, to those who ran the field today, and a particularly big thank you to Rob Pugh who chased after and retrieved all three of us. What a great Father's Day!
