11th April Devils Dyke 2017 Glider Gin Sprint 3
As with every April gone by, April can be as smooth as silk and or rough as old boots.
I am referring to the thermic air flow.
Top tip avoid ridge soaring in thermic air, make use of the big landing fields at the bottom and avoid top landings.
So thermic air in UK can be hard work to top land, often and not it is easier to make a bottom landing which increases the safety margins by 200 percent !
