3x2 have fun at St Agnes

The forecast played ball and it was a super day from the word go with a nice northerly and plenty of fluffy things floating in the sky.  By 09.00 three Tandems had called in not long after the van was loaded and we were on our way to St Agnes.

With Adie having been there since 09.00 and confirming thing were getting better our timing was spot on and it was not long before the Paragliders were out and we were up in the air for a fly before going to "work". peachy arrived and joined in the fun along with Mike C and Chris H.  In nice lifty sea thermic conditions it was super flying for all and ideal for Tandems.

John G gets ready to go

Back on the ground I met up with John G who was first to arrive for his flight and after a briefing we were set to go.  A nice launch saw us off and away and soon climbing nicely to join the others. John with a background in sailing had a good idea of what was going on and was soon flying the glider himself and just loving it.  The sea thermals gave added entertainment with as luck would have it the best ones coming through as we set up for landing, it would have been rude to ignore them so we stayed up a little longer for some more fun.  With others arriving we popped back in to land to round off a cracking flight.  John with a big smile was last seen discussing learning to fly with Kaz .......watch this space ;)

The Tandem floats away with John on board

Rupert C and Dave S had both arrived so we got them briefed together before clipping Rupert in to go first.  An incident delayed things a little as a visiting pilot took off with a line tangle then dropped back in from about 15 feet enveloping a modeller who was flying a model at the time with his wing. Things were a little heated for a time but with Kaz exercising her bets diplomatic skills things calmed down and no one was hurt but a few lessons hopefully learnt.

Rupert looking cool as he takes control

just loving it :)

With things back on track they both had super flights in what remained all day cracking conditions and both proved pretty good at flying the glider themselves giving me a rest.  Dave was lucky, he had only called in the morning as his voucher was getting near it's expiry date and on finding out that it was on for the day decided to go for it and drove from Newton Abbott, well worth the call :))

Dave (ironman) S  enjoys the view 

That face says it all 

So with happy faces all  round (well nearly) we spent the rest of the afternoon playing, socialising and checking out camper vans, very pleasant.

Thanks to Adie for the lift home as I was left abandoned playing with the late day thermals ..........
