Fall Flying at WMSS

Saturday was a better than expected day for flying. Temps warm, few clouds, modest wind at 5-10 mph (we expected 10 – 15 mph). We started at 10:30 AM and found some ridge lift from the trees early, then the wind calmed down and thermals started popping. They seemed to be moving pretty fast so you had to stick with them downwind. Naturally John Winstanley did well downwind and got a 1/2 hr. flight with his Xantipa. Katie, Larry Jeffery, Cliff and Francois all got in some great flying. I flew my Shadow and the Cross Tail Duck. It was a great day to fly.
