Thursday was a good day for thermalling. Launching about 1PM I was able to slowly climb ~200’/min to 807′ above launch and float around for 26 minutes! No impressive lift but it was only March 14th! Video of flight is on Youtube. Not the smooth, flat 360’s I used to slowly climb.
After landing, I talked Kevin S.—-a P3 student— into a thermal that he was able to use for a few climbing 360’s.
Saturday morning looks like the best opportunity to fly this weekend. Saturday afternoon is forecast to have a 50% chance of rain. Sunday is again calling for west winds.
