Congratulations to all the pilots, who came along to the XC flying workshops in Somerset at the weekend. For many pilots the techniques to improve glide were very surprising and the thermal searching techniques raised quite a few eye brows. They are itching to give the techniques a go and I have to say that these south-westerners are a seriously motivated bunch. The sea is never far away but that is a challenge that they are keen to overcome.
I hope to see lots of new names in the XC league this year and some real big flights from the ones who have already started their XC career.
Next event in the north on Feb 18th. A few places are still left.
