Conditions continue to improve
With a further increase in temperature and continued light winds the flying
conditions improved today over Tuesday. We started earlier at 1:15 PM for our
first flights. I was off first and came down almost last 37 minutes later after
climbing to 2,700' and then working weak lift low.
Mitch Shipley, Larry Bunner and I got right back in the air and the conditions
were much better with a launch at 2:04 PM. We all drifted west in the east wind
and found light lift to over 3,000'. Larry and I went further downwind and found
360 fpm to 3,400'.
Our task was to go south past the Seminole glider port and back but the TOL was
a little too low for that. I worked my way back east and played around with
getting low and then working back up. I then decided to go land. Mitch and Larry
were able to get to 4,000' at 3:30 PM.
Tomorrow, Thursday, looks very promising with a southeast flow of light winds.
Could be cumulus clouds tomorrow. The winds are light enough for a closed course
