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 !
Punchy Monkey airflow later, but the morning was OK. Some people are never happy 🙂
Looking for an x demo used by myself only under in mint condition ?
Well I have one email to

Pitched up at Devils Dyke to fly for myself as clients had to commit to other plans at the last moment. Turned out rather well not a moment of stress and just me to think about.
Had a nice flight on a medium Sprint and also my Small Sprint 3 which is for sale.
Flying at 94 kg the Medium Sprint was fun, but the tightness was in the smallGin Sprint for sure, core that baby thermal required a small well loaded ready to rock and roll.
I was hoping that the medium would give me that etc sink rate performance but I kept on using the speed bar to play catch up, compared to my nippy small sprint.
Choices choices, conditions light winds in a March but very warm day with some great flying buddies at Devils Dyke.
Looking for advise on Gin gliders then contact Rob Chisholm South East Dealer.
Have you ever bought a new reserve and then had it fitted into the harness and then 2 years later have it repacked by a local club repack evening ?
If so read on this information might help you relax and learn.
If you see below you can read 07 in Date letters before are FG, some people might think 07 is the year of manufacture of reserve?
Letters below G stands for July and A for an example would be January – If ever unsure contact the company direct IE the importer.
All re packers such as Mike Eddie at the Loft are professional and know this information on how to read the date of manufacture.
