20kt wave day…!

Main highlights of the day were:-

  • Several pilots bounced off the base of the airway @ FL125.
  • Patches of REALLY horrendous turbulence (you had to flying in it to believe how bad it was!)
  • Most pilots experienced 10+ kts at some time during their climbs with their varios hard on the stops.
  • Martin Watt got the best climb rate of the day where it peaked at 20 kts up!
  • As the sky was crystal clear, (due to all the recent rain I suspect) there were tremendous views from Snowdon in the North to across the Severn to the coast of Somerset. The Beacons looked amazing with a dusting of snow on the peaks.

All in all a great Talgarth gliding day.
