This week it’s our special pleasure to congratulate one of our own, eighteen year old Cameron Evans, who’s been crewing with us here since before he could reach the pedals. He will now wear forever a distinction many fellow pilots can never claim, flying his first solo in a sporty crosswind. Way to go Cam!

In other news, yes the season has changed. We’ve had a week of wave conditions, ending today (Thursday), with brisk wind from the west on Saturday but otherwise mostly light air and plenty of ‘autumn’ thermals — see SOARING IS LEARNING below.
