Day Five – Thursday 13th February

After a good contest day yesterday, the prognosis was for some wave today. Well, there was some wave but the sky was changing every 5 minutes so we had to declare it a no contest day. Most pilots launched for some local flying. Hugh de Lautour got to 9,500ft twice and James Foreman headed up to Napier to make up for a lousy day yesterday. Team Wellington got into wave in the DG-1000 and was there for some time with a total flight of just under three hours. We hope for better conditions tomorrow but at least we could fly and no rain!
